How to Make An Irish Cheeseboard

Cheeseboard or charcuterie boards are always a good idea. If you want to make one for St. Patrick’s Day, here are a few ingredient tips for making one at home.

Begin with the cheeses

Irish Central says, “The number one rule for putting together a cheese board is variety – you want to make sure there’s a range of flavors, textures, and colors. Aim for one hard cheese, such as an Irish cheddar; a strong cheese such as an Irish blue; a semi-soft cheese like a Farmhouse Cheese such as Gubbeen; and a soft cheese such as Irish goat cheese.”

Add the accompaniments

Choosing fresh fruits, like apple slices, strawberries, and grapes, are perfect for non-dairy options. Dried fruit is also nice like figs, cranberries, apricots, raisins, or dates.

Then add nuts like almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and Brazil nuts for a lovely texture contrast.

Finally, include slices of Irish brown bread, cream crackers, or oat crackers.
