A cheese tray, or cracker and cheese tray, is a collection of cheeses that is often served with bread, crackers, cured meats, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and dips or spreads.
Start with something tall in the middle like a glass full of grapes or breadsticks. Arrange the cheeses and larger bowls of dips or jams around the board, then set the breads and crackers next to the cheeses. Next, place the charcuterie meats, experimenting with shapes like folds, roll-ups and bunches. Finally, fill in the spaces between with nuts, fruit, vegetables, and other ingredients.
