Platters that turn heads
Ive become obsessed with making my cheese & fruit platters pretty, rustic & able to feed many.
Oh the joy I get watching peoples eyes light up when they see these hit the table.
Below is our NYE platter & it easily fed 4 kids & 4 adults & took me about ten minutes to throw together.
My plate was about 40cm wide & round but you can use anything that is food safe, think timber boards, bowls or even entire table tops for large crowds.
Add anything you think works. I love edible flowers & will be experimenting with them soon.
Tips & tricks for a platter with tude:
Use interesting boards & bowls, think rustic & natural.
Decant your dips into a pretty bowl. No store bought packaging unless its super cool & worth showing off.
Fill it up! Don't leave any space.
Fill gaps with baby spinach or rocket leaves.
Colour adds interest. Coloured dips, fruit & vege do the job.
Make sure you have great cheese knives to make cutting & eating easy.
French bread boards make beautiful platter boards
eat up, drink up & enjoy!
