The Women in Cheese Board

We’re celebrating women in cheese! We’ve selected items on this board that come from women-run operations like Quicke’s, Meadow Creek Dairy, and Trade Street Jam Co. to give a nod to the hard work of these artisanal makers. This simple but sweet platter is piled high with bold favorites like funky Grayson and rich pepperoni, plus a fig and chipotle jam and herbaceous rosemary marcona almonds. Turn this celebratory spread into a garden picnic with some flowery garnishes and bright bites of your choosing.
