We're partnering with Hilton Garden Inn to help you bring hotel hospitality into your home with recipes (and not-recipes!) that are perfect for sharing. Here, we're taking a cue from Hilton Garden Inn's decked-out cheese boards—complete with Brie, prosciutto, tangy gherkins, and more—and learning from the pros how to make one at home.
While cheese plates have been around since the dawn of dairy, it seems like lately they’ve gotten bigger, more beautiful, and more bountiful than ever. It’s no longer enough to throw a couple of cheeses on a plate and call it a "cheese plate." Today’s design-forward boards are overflowing with crudités, crackers, and accoutrements, and feature tricks like “salami rivers” or color-coded arrangements.
