Beautiful moments are essential to life, even in the most casual settings. I have just returned from an amazing vacation on our dear freinds houseboat in Lake Powell. It is this incredible setting that is quite hard to describe, the best I have come up with is "the Grand Canyon filled with 80 degree water"
The fun thing about vacationing on a houseboat is that you have to bring all of your food and cook there. Our group was full of foodies and we all took on different meals and appetizers thoughout the week. This cheese plate was particularly great because our freind Chris made these delicious Parmesan crisps to spread the Brie onto. Cheese on cheese count me in! He laid out all of the crisps on one side of a small cutting board and then sliced some of the Brie to make it more fab! Simple details like this really elivate the experience of sharing some wine and cheese under the stars. As we said on the boat "it's not exactly roughing it"
If you are inspired to create your own I am loving this cheese board from Ralph Lauren Home. I love investing in entertaining essentials like this that I use all of the time. Cheese boards aren't a trend so find one you love and use it forever. Are you feeling this little cheese moment? Do you have any tips of your own for elevating the basics?
