What you'll do

There's no better time than now to treat yourself to a fancy a$$ cheese plate. But how do you make it look like the ones on Instagram? And how do you even know what cheeses and other ingredients to choose?

Sophie will walk you through all the steps, from how to flirt with your local cheesemonger to prepping & arranging all your ingredients like a master. We’ll cover all you need to know!

1. How to reduce overwhelm at the cheese counter & choose the perfect ingredients
2. How to prep & prepare ingredients
3. How to arrange the board

The workshop takes about one hour, but if you'd like to have some extra time to hang out and enjoy your finished boards together, we recommend 1.5 hours.

What's in the kit:

DIY ingredient kit:
- Three cheeses (brie, toma, and gouda)
- One cured meat (Creminelli Salami Varzi)
- Apple, jam, toasted almonds, olives, berries, dates, crackers
- Flowers

Vegetarian options are available.

Delivery information

DIY kits can be shipped within the US only. Guests outside the US can join with the "class only" option, and we'll provide a list of ingredients for them to procure.

We have two shipping options:
- USPS Priority Mail: 2-4 days. We find USPS to be quite reliable, and their pricing is much lower.
- UPS 2-Day Air Mail: Some groups choose this option if they have a lot of attendees in apartments or living communities, as packages are delivered directly to the door instead of a mailroom. UPS no longer guarantees a 2-day delivery time, and in our experience most packages take 2-4 days.  

Notes on shipping and refunds:

We ship all kits out 4-5 days before your event and can provide tracking numbers upon request. Please remind your guests to check their mail and put their ingredients in the fridge as soon as their kit arrives for freshness. If we make a mistake, we are happy to offer a refund for the actual cost of the kit ($75). Sometimes a box doesn't make it in time for reasons outside our control. We cannot offer refunds for USPS delays, incorrect addresses, or failure to refrigerate ingredients upon arrival. Thanks for understanding!
