Steps to create the Cheese Board 

1. Your first step is to cut out 1 small triangle from your Brie. Place the brie on the corner of your board with the triangle slightly removed. 

2. Lay approximately 6 pieces of salami on a flat surface. Overlap them about 1-2 inches. Fold all pieces in half together. Tightly roll the folded pieces of salami until a rose shape is formed. Place beside the Brie.

3. Place slices of prosciutto on the other side of your Brie along the corner

4. Place your mini jam jar in the corner across from your Brie. If you don't have a mini jar, you can simply put a bit of jam into a small ramekin instead.

5. Take your crackers or baguette slices and arrange them overlapping each other wherever there is space left on the board.

Your Cheese board is now ready to serve! Since the biggest item is the Cheese, we would suggest keeping your crackers/baguette slices close by so you can add more onto the Cheese board as they get low. 

You will absolutely love this simple combination of flavours. The salty meat, creamy cheese, crunchy crackers, and touch of sweet with tartness from the jam. It's the perfect taste in every bite. This Cheese board will leave your taste buds happy and your guests even happier.
