It is that time of the year — chocolate, bunnies, carrots and eggs line the shops, and the smell of hot cross buns fills the air. It’s Easter, one of the most joyous times of the year! A time for families and friends to get together and enjoy a lovely weekend, full of Easter festivities — often involving food and lots of it.
Whether you have brunch, lunch, or morning tea planned, we’ve got you sorted with the quintessential staple for all Easter gatherings – a grazing board. Why not add a twist on your regular charcuterie table and opt for an Easter themed grazing board? This is one of the easiest ways to feed a crowd and you can even get creative and have fun putting it together, too.
They say, ‘inhale charcuterie, exhale negativity’ and we are all for it.
To create the ultimate Easter grazing board for your event you’ll need to gather some of your favourite grazing items. Feel free to purchase as many goodies as you like but we recommend the below items to ensure your board isn’t missing any staples.
The next step is to find the perfect board to adorn with delish food. A large wooden board is ideal, but a platter will also work well.
Now, it’s time to get creative!
We recommend starting with the placement of the cheese and larger items, then work down towards the smaller ones. This is going to be a masterpiece so remember to think about the composition. Hot tip: separate any similar shapes. For example, don’t put two circular cheeses next to each other.
Once you are happy with the placement of your larger items, adorn the rest of the board with crackers, fruit, dips, meat, olives, and chocolate. Try rolling your deli meats or utilise a toothpick, this elevates the aesthetic of the board and adds a professional touch.
Don’t forget to add an Easter touch with chocolate eggs, hot cross buns and flowers. After all this is an Easter themed grazing board, and who doesn’t love a scrumptious hot cross bun?
Now for the best part, time to sit back and enjoy your marvellous creation. Don’t forget to snap a pic before you dig in.
