How to Build a Spring Brunch Cheeseboard

The following tips and photography were provided by local blogger Abby Thome of The Thome Home.

No celebration is complete without a cheeseboard, and this one was designed for spring!

Heinen’s Specialty Cheese Department is a treasure trove for the cheese lover, so I couldn’t help but build a board featuring an assortment of their light and bright seasonal cheeses for my upcoming spring entertaining.

This board could not be easier to assemble. Simply slice a few pieces of cheese off of each block, wedge or wheel and place the whole cheeses and cut pieces all throughout a serving board or platter. Once you like the way the cheeses are arranged, add jars of jam or spreads and any of your favorite accoutrements to make the board look full. Then, finish by tucking fresh tulips and greenery from Heinen’s Floral Department along the edges.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
