You can never go wrong with a classic cheese and cracker board, but it’s time to start thinking outside of the box. Take a look around your favorite local specialty food shop and find an item you’ve never tried before. Use that as an inspired starting point to create an epic cheese board full of fun, new, adventurous flavors!


This could be anything from a unique fruit to a specialty jam, or maybe even an herbed cheese spread you’ve been eyeing for a while. Make that adventurous item the focal point to design an epic cheese board for you and your guests.

Warm It Up

Cheese boards are typically associated with cold or room temperature items, but why not mix things up? Pair your classic charcuterie favorites with something new. A warm cheese dip or spread can warm things up for the cooler weather and surprise your guests with a fun new twist on charcuterie.

Think Seasonally

Celebrate the flavors of the season! Whether it’s summer strawberries or toasted pumpkin seeds--seasonal flavors are always sure to please your guests. Design your cheese board to make seasonal flavors the star. Once you’ve found the perfect seasonal item, choose complementary fruits, spreads, cheeses, and crackers to build an epic cheese board your guests are sure to love. 

Lastly, change up your board to coordinate with the season. Check out our Acacia Wood Cheese Board, it's gives off some great fall and winter vibes! 

Travel the World

Travel the world from your kitchen! Peruse the international aisle of your grocery store, explore travel videos on YouTube, or throw a dart at a map--challenge yourself to explore the flavors and offerings of a new place. Design your cheese board around international cuisine of a place you haven’t yet been. It’s a fun way to share your sense of adventure with your friends and family, and try something new together. Who knows, you may even find a new favorite appetizer!
