I think you guys know me well enough to know that I love a cheese board.

The seriously love-affair-type love.

So I’ll take any excuse to make and have a cheese board.

Jeez, the things I do for you guys, right?

I mean, I have already done this, this and this.

But I haven’t done an antipasto version.

So, that’s what we have here.

And we just have so much happening here.

Cured meats.

So many different kinds of cheeses.

Artichoke hearts, olives, peppadew peppers (which are basically the best things ever).

Marcona almonds.

And tons of focaccia bread because, well, carbs on carbs.

Now as a favor for you guys, I’ll be taste-testing this further during the Super Bowl.

See, this is true commitment to all of you.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Iam bringing platter for holiday and its the best

  2. What type of cheese in the glass bowl?

  3. A little off topic, but I love how you arranged everything on a round platter. And I love the platter underneath with the handles, too. Do you remember where you bought them and if they came in a set? Thank you!

  4. How many people will this serve?

  5. Yum! My husband and I like to have a charcuterie plate for dinner on Sundays… I like your antipasto twist!

  6. Although (to my embarrassment) I’m a really picky eater and probably wouldn’t enjoy everything on your board, it is beautiful and just might push me beyond my usual limits. It’s the most gorgeous cheeseboard I’ve seen – maybe ever!

  7. Wow that is one epic cheeseboard. Great work!!!

  8. All my favs, but what are the tiny red (peppers?) in the olive mix? I must have. Thank you for sharing!

  9. I love the aesthetics of your cheese boards! Absolutely beautiful and creative. You’re a culinary artist.

  10. Thanks, I have a quarterly luncheon I do with friends, I’m always looking for something new or different.  This will be on the menu❤️

  11. A cheeseboard is among my favorite things. Although, with too many cheeses I enjoy, it’s so hard to choose! I’ll have to look at this one as guide to for my next cheese plate.

  12. Yum! I totally need to make this for dinner soon!
