How To Create The Ultimate Gourmet Grazing Board

Winter calls for nights by the fire with friends, some delicious food and a good bottle of red. We’ve put together a simple recipe to create an insta-worthy gourmet grazing board…

You’ll need:


  • A large board or platter
  • Cheese knives
  • A few decorative bowls
  • Decorative toothpicks



  1. Slice the bread into small pieces. Drizzle with Vasse Virgin Extra Virgin Olive Oil and salt, and bake in a warm oven for a few minutes to warm through and get a little crunchy.
  2. Arrange the cheeses onto your board or platter. Spoon the pickled blueberries on top of the soft and blue cheese and drizzle some of the juice over the cheeses too.
  3. Skewer one cherry tomato, one basil leaf and one bocconcini ball onto the toothpicks, drizzle with a little Vasse Virgin Chilli Balsamic Vinegar.
  4. Place the hummus in a decorative bowl and top with your favourite Vasse Virgin Dukkah (we love the Bush Tomato Dukkah with hummus!)
  5. Pour some Vasse Virgin Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a small bowl, place dukkah into another bowl
  6. Roll the meats so they are in a log shape
  7. Now it's time to get creative! Arrange the dukkah, oil, skewers, bread, meats and hummus onto your platter.
  8. Use the crackers, fruit, veg and olives to create patterns on the platter, start with one items then use the rest to follow the design.
  9. Now use the dried fruit and nuts to fill in any gaps. Use these to really fill up the board so it looks nice and full.
  10. Serve immediately with friends and family- enjoy!
