Putting It Together
- Shawn prefers to start by placing her bowls on the cheese board first so she knows which flavors will take up which sections on the board.
- Next, she arranges the cheese based on what she plans to pair it with. You can see that her Président® Brie is near the charcuterie and crostini that it pairs best with.
- After the cheeses and bowls are in place, start filling in the charcuterie and bowls. Shawn used almonds, popcorn, gummies, and conveniently cut Président® Feta Marinated Cubes in her bowls.
- Now that the board is over halfway done, Shawn fills in the grapes, blue corn tortilla chips, pepper jelly, honeycomb and pomegranate seeds – a Utah classic.
- Last but not least, it’s time to garnish! Both our pros opted for Président® Comté cut into star shapes for that extra patriotic touch. Simply use a cookie cutter and place it on the board for a pop of fun.

Putting It Together
- Morgan starts her cheese board by placing the larger cheeses first, like the 8oz round of Président® Brie and a half wheel of Président® Camembert.
- She follows up by placing her bowls on the board so she knows where her accompaniments are supposed to go
- Next, it’s time to build the salami river. Do this by folding the slices of salami in half and then quarters – the best part of this is that is they stand up on their own and can divide the flavors on your cheese board.
- Now it’s time to fill the bowls. Morgan fills a bowl with creamy Président® Goat Cheese and topped it with crushed red pepper flakes and a drizzle of honey – a sweet heat and refreshing treat! She filled her other bowl with delicious and garlicky homemade hummus.
- To finish it off, Morgan fills in the rest of her board with fruits, nuts, crackers, veggies and those crowd-pleasing Président® Comté stars.
