It’s November 1st and you know what that means! The holiday season is about to buzz into full swing! Before you know it, your calendar will be filling up with all kinds of holiday parties. And what’s a holiday party without a proper cheeseboard?!

I’ve partnered with Montchevre® to show you how to build an epic cheeseboard using their Flavored Goat Cheese Logs. Their goat cheese is made from fresh quality milk and comes in 12 different flavors! With so many options, you’ll find flavors that meet your tastes and preferences. I chose the Montchevre® Natural, Montchevre® Garlic and Herb, and Montchevre® Honey varieties for this cheeseboard.

Let’s start with the base:

 

Not having the “right” surface to build the cheeseboard on is not a good excuse for not making one. There are many household items that can serve as great surface for building your cheeseboard.

Cutting Boards – round, square, rectangular, any will work! If you only have small boards, use a few close together or do what I did and put the biggest board you have in the middle to hold the cheese, meats or anything else that may need to be cut and put everything else around it on the table.

Baking Sheets – Large baking sheets work really well! The rim around the edge helps hold everything in making it easily transportable if you are bringing it to a party.

Tiered Serving Trays – Serving trays with multiple levels are often used to display desserts, but they can work for cheeseboards as well! Especially if you are short on space, it takes up less room on the table and also looks pretty!

What to pair with goat cheese:

 

Montchevre® Goat Cheeses are creamy with a tangy flavor. The Natural flavor  pairs nicely with both sweet and savory flavors of which we have a variety on this board. The meats, nuts and olives are all salty items that pair well with the Garlic and Herb as well as the Natural goat cheese. The sweet additions like the grapes, honey and fig spread are great with the Honey flavor and again work with the Natural. The goat cheeses are easily spreadable which is why I’ve included plenty of different cracker varieties.

How to dress up your cheeseboard

 

This is a holiday cheeseboard, so make it festive! I picked some greenery from the trees behind our house and added a few pine cones and cinnamon sticks for decor. I also dressed it up with some edible decor like bunches of red grapes, a pomegranate opened up with seeds exposed and some cranberries.
