So excited to introduce this cookbook to everyone! I have to be up front and say my dear friend, Lisa Bolton wrote it but that in no way makes it a biased opinion. Believe me when you see it you will understand why I think it is one of the most beautiful and clever books we have in our repetoire.


For us, it has been an excellent way to teach a skill that the boys will be able to use in their life. A meat and cheese board can be an easy and inexpensive way to feed your friends and allows you to cater to all tastes. The boys and I used the book as inspiration and made boards with food in the fridge. Now they can put something together for me to put out before the guests arrive and I can focus on getting dinner ready :)

Lisa has put together 50 ideas for instantly approachable boards, all with effortless entertaining in mind, as well as 52 recipes you can use. All of the boards can be pulled together in very little time, and all include presentation and styling tips to make them (and you!) shine. Whether you are looking for a breakfast or brunch board; a board for a picnic, potluck or playdate; for Thanksgiving, Superbowl Sunday or New Year's Eve; for a huge celebration or a cozy date night for two, it is included in this collection of gorgeously curated boards.


On a side note, this book makes a great hostess gift idea with a wooden cheese board.
