Festive Holiday Wreath Veggie and Cheese Board

This is not your average Cheese Board. After all, anyone can cut some cheese, put it on a board, and call it dinner. Not today. After nearly three years of stay-at-home holidays, we’ve returned to the test kitchen again to share this delightful little feast with you. We’re all opening our homes again and having fun with food. It’s always best to first feast the eyes with an artful presentation, and this wreath will please all the senses. Impress your guests with a new and creative appetizer.

How to make this Cheese Board

Step One: Shop

Take a trip to your local market and pick up a few of your favorite cheeses. We selected smoked gouda, mozzarella, and sharp cheddar, but you can use your favorites.

Next, visit the produce department and grab a bunch of radishes and a few different bunches of herbs.

Now visit the gourmet specialty aisle and pick up some stuffed olives and marinated peppers.

Our rich and wonderful Spring Honey will complete this project nicely.

To make a flower radish, start by cutting the top off the radish. Next, cut “V’s” around the top.

Step Three: Cut the cheese

Cut cranberry cheese into cubes. Cut smoked gouda into wedges

Ever wonder what Charcuterie means? It is a term that dates way back to 15th-century France, and it translates to pork butcher’s shop, Middle French charcuterie, from chaircutier pork butcher, from chair cuite cooked meat. Still, today the activity is about gathering your favorite meats, cheeses, veggies, nuts, and honey in a beautiful and appetizing array.
