Boards: Stylish Spreads for Casual Gatherings
Take Boards Way Beyond Cheese and Crackers
When it comes to entertaining there’s nothing as crowd pleasing and visually impressive as a well thought out grazing board. So much more than just cheese and cured meat—these edible displays are an approachable and elegant way of presenting food. Show off your effortless entertaining style with showstopping conversation-starting spreads that give you the flexibility to make or buy components as you choose. Guests can shake up their own popcorn with a Movie Night Board complete with individual paper bags for popcorn and a variety of sprinkle-on flavorings. Or, create a low-lift Tapas Board by making our foolproof Spanish Tortilla and adding store-bought cheeses, olives, and tinned fish.
