Grape & Fig: How to Create the Perfect Easter Grazing Board

Wednesday 27th Mar 2024 |

TikTok is positively buzzing with Easter tablescaping ideas right now ( these videos have racked up 951,000 views in the last week alone) and so what better time to indulge in ‘Fleur de Fromage’ from grazing experts Grape & Fig?

This edible centrepiece is the next big thing for your Easter table and can be replicated for any family gathering or social occasion. A stunning arrangement of creamy Port Salut Cheese, shaped to resemble a vibrant bouquet of flowers.

Why settle for ordinary flowers when you can delight your guests with a centerpiece that not only pleases the eyes but tantalizes the taste buds?

 What you’ll need

  • Port Salut cheese wedges
  • Flowers to decorate
  • Crackers
  • Choice of fruits
  • Antipasti
  • Charcuterie
  • Mini Jars of honey (optional)

How-to

  1. Start by slicing the cheese into delicate, thin wedges using a cheese slicer (don’t worry if this gets a bit messy, it’s all part of the fun!)
  2. To create a “flower” effect, start from the “pistil” (using a cube of Port Salut) and from the inside, out, layer “petals” of cheese until your creation resembles a flower. We’ve added some wedges of Port Salt to our cheeseboard too to add some variety.
  3. Now the tricky parts done, you can build the rest of your board using mini jars of honey (pairs amazingly well with the cheese), fruits, antipasti & charcuterie of course! 
  4. To finish, add some real flowers to make your board “pop”, serve with some crackers and dig in!
