Step 1:
Pick your serving platter, and make it something beautiful + unique! We recommend a Tin Roof Cutting Board sold at KBC.

Tinroof is owned and operated by Ozark natives. Pictured above is the Spring Orchard cutting board. All cutting boards are handmade with reclaimed wood harvested from nature.

Step 2:
Procure your favorite cheese from your local cheese monger at KBC Butcher Block. Factor about 2-3 oz. of cheese per person. (Example: 10 people/4 cheeses: you need 20-30oz. of cheese or 5 – 7 oz. of each cheese). Here are the 4 we'd pick from KBC's cheese selection:

  1. Green Hill – soft ripened grass fed cow’s milk from Thomasville, GA
  2. Belle Chevre – fresh, tangy, goat cheese from Elkmont,  AL
  3. 15 month Beecher’s Cheddar –cow’s milk aged 15 monthsSeattle,OR
  4. Statesboro Blue – young creamy raw cow’s milk blue from Faribault, MN
Beecher's Flagship Cheddar: cow's milk cheddar aged 15 months in Seattle, Oregon.

Statesboro Blue Cheese: young, creamy, raw cow's milk blue cheese from Faribault, Minnesota.

Step 3:
Arrange cheeses from mildest to strongest. If you're using the ones above, we'd arrange from left to right: Green Hill Belle Chevre > Green Hill > Beecher's > Statesboro Blue. 

Step 4:
Fill open spaces beside and behind cheeses with fruit or olives.  Don’t forget to leave space for cutting cheese and crackers.

  • Berries work well with creamy cow’s milk cheeses like the Green Hill
  • Figs marry perfectly with goats milk cheeses
  • Dates or grapes are wonderful with blue cheeses
  • Olives go great will all cheeses!

PRO TIP: we sell a house-made olive blend at KBC if you really want to make this next level.

Step 5:
Use fresh bread or crackers. Of course we'd recommend KBC's house-made crackers or ciabatta baked daily.

Step 6:
Put one knife out for soft cheeses one for hard and one for blue. Cut, spread and enjoy!
