There are a few, great foods in life that you can make a whole meal out of. You know the ones I'm talking about - the food that's technically not socially considered a meal in traditional terms, but you've found yourself binging on it on a Saturday night with no intention of eating a true, well-rounded meal afterwards. One of my personal favorites is wine + popcorn à la Olivia Pope, paired with Netflix, of course (just me?). But the non-meal of all non-meals probably goes to the tried and true cheeseboard.
I've spent many-a-girls nights snacking on a darlingly curated cheeseboard and a good red in hand with nary a real meal in sight. Or, let's be honest here: who can relate to the occasional after-work "cheeseboard" of one or two cheeses from the "fancy" cheese section of the grocery stored paired with a package of "fancy crackers" and cheap bottle of wine? Hey, no judgment. We all need those nights. But when you're ready to get truly fancy and wow your "fancy section of the grocery store" friends, remember this tutorial constructed by the ever-talented Root Cellar Catering Co. and you can't go wrong. It's hardly a recipe, but rather, the master instructions to constructing the most perfect cheeseboard for the holiday season. Impress your fellow partygoers with a platter that just might make Olivia Pope give up her popcorn for good.
