This Valentine’s Day cheese board has everything you need for a romantic evening with your special someone. There’s chocolate, fruit, and all sorts of assorted meats and cheeses. Pair it with a glass of bubbles and you’re all set for a picture perfect evening!


  • 3 cheeses with different flavors and textures
  • 3 assorted meats like salami, chorizo, and soppressata
  • Assorted crackers and bread 
  • Variety of fruits like strawberries, cherries, pomegranate arils etc.
  • 13 spreads like jam and honey
  • Small assortment of sweet treats (chocolate, truffles, chocolate covered fruit)
  • Acidic vegetables like cornichons and olives


  1. Start with the cheeses, spreading them across the board. This is also a good time to add your jam jars and cheese knives. 
  2. Add the meats, being sure to lay them close to the cheese. 
  3. Add your crackers followed by the fruit. We like to place the longer crackers along the edges of the board.
  4. Add any sweet treats like chocolate, truffles, etc.
  5. Fill in any small spaces with vegetables and nuts. Enjoy!


Cheese tastes best at room temperature so assemble your board at least 1 hour before serving.
