Elegant Cheese Board

Creating the first Cheese Board of 2020

For my first cheese board in 2020 I had two goals…

1. To create “a Green and White Color Story” to coordinate back to all of extra flowers from my recent birthday party, which meant working with green grapes, green apples, green olives and a selection of white cheeses.

2. To create something “Savory and Warm” to compliment the cool January temperatures. (As you know we don’t get chilly – ever – here in Miami, but I know most of you are in the midst of winter and want something warm to compliment your evening), so a baked brie with a new twist sounded like the perfect way to go.

I am thrilled with how the board came together and have created a shopping list for re-creating at home. Cheers the first FH cheese board of 2020!
