Holiday How-To Videos

Having people over? Going to a party? Hosting Thanksgiving at your house?

Any one of those things can be intimidating if you really haven’t ever put together an appetizer that is stunning – because, who thinks of that while they’re on the beach in July? Lucky for you – we weren’t at the beach. We were thinking about how we could help you put together a gorgeous cheese board like a pro – all that stuff about textures and soft rinds and … well there’s so much to know about cheese.  And an antipasto platter? Please – there are as many kinds of olives as there are cheeses!

Hosting Thanksgiving can mean you get handed a giant knife and all eyes are upon you – another holiday stress point. So these videos are intended to guide you to build a cheese platter, and an antipasto platter easily and quickly. And then march right up to that dining room table and carve yourself a turkey like a boss.

Happy Holidays!
