It’s clear after sharing close to 100 (ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration) cheese boards over the years on instagram that people love them. They like looking at them, eating them, and having them at their gatherings. They are a beautiful, edible centerpiece that will keep people talking throughout the night about how gooood it is. So, obviously the next step was… drumroll… to show you how I make mine. It’s probably way less complicated than you think. And it’s always about filling your space, almost in a messy way, but an intentionally messy way;)
