Garnish

Instructions

  • As you know, I like to start by adding the olives, cornichons, and Marcona almonds to separate small bowls or ramekins and place them in the center of the board to anchor it.
  • Place the prepared cheeses around the outside edge of the board.
  • Next, fan out a handful of savory thins and figs & olive crackers around ramekins. Serve any remaining crackers on the side.
  • Add the dried persimmons, raspberries and grapes sections throughout the board, paying attention to color placement.
  • Tuck the Calabrese salami folds and Salami Secchi slices into any remaining spaces around the ramekins and produce sections.
  • Garnish with rosemary and chocolate to serve.
