Recipe Tips

Make it SimpleThinly sliced meats, such as those shown in the photo, can often be purchased in an assortment package found in the deli or cheese departments of your supermarket. Check out the store's olive or salad bar for the marinated vegetables and olives. Try serving an assortment of olive varieties, such as those flavoured with crushed red pepper or herbs.

Vary the Cheeses and MeatsFor a more interesting board, serve 3 or 4 different kinds of cheeses having a variety of textures, shapes and flavours. Soft, semi-soft and firm cheese in a variety of shapes, such as cubes, slices, logs and wedges, all add interest. Sliced meats can either be rolled up or just laid out flat. Or, roll the sliced meat around mozzarella cheese sticks. Salami is commonly available in mild, spicy or pepper-encrusted slices.

Cheese TipsFor best flavour, let the cheeses sit for about 15 min. at room temperature before serving. When serving a wedge or full chunk of cheese, be sure to place a knife on the board for each variety of cheese being served.
