    For the Lox Cheese Ball:

  1. Roughly chop the lox and add to a small bowl along with the cream cheese, black pepper and half the diced chives. Mix well to incorporate and chill for 10 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and roll the cheese ball in the remaining chives.

    For the Meatballs:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine the pork, beef, egg, breadcrumbs and salt in a medium bowl. Form ½” meatballs and place in rows on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes. While the meatballs are baking, combine the marmalade, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a small saucepan and heat, stirring to combine. Remove the meatballs from the oven and increase the heat to a high broil. Toss the meatballs in the marmalade mixture, simmering for 3-5 minutes. Return the meatballs to the lined baking sheet and broil until deeply browned on both sides.

    To Build the Board:

  1. Slice the Cotswold into cubes, and partially chunk the Roomano.
  2. On a large rectangular board, start arranging from the corners in. In the top left corner, place the crumbled Roomano. In the bottom left, make a neat stack of crackers. In the bottom right, place the homemade Lox Cheese Ball. In the top right corner, make a neat pile of Cotswold cubes.
  3. In the middle area, place two empty jars along with your homemade meatballs and bacon wrapped dates. These can be served in individual dishes or placed directly on the board.
  4. Make another pile of crackers on the right side of the board, between the Cotswold and the cheese ball. Then place your pigs in a blanket towards the top of the board, just left of the Cotswold.
  5. Make a pile of cheddar curds to the left of the cheese ball, and a pile of Castelvetrano olives to the left of the curds.
  6. Surround the Roomano with pickled cauliflower. Fill the remaining space on the board with spicy marcona almonds.
  7. Fill the two jars with Whole Grain Mustard and Smooth Dijon Mustard, respectively.
