Virtual Team Offsite

Gathering Boards 101


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.

Sophie is an expert in her craft. It was a pleasure to learn from her in this relaxed, creative environment. I learned a bunch of new skills that I can add to my cheese board arsenal, and I feel well-equipped to recreate something beautiful and impressive on my own.

Sophie is a wonderful guide in creating truly beautiful sharing boards. We were able to get creative, learn about local businesses, and interact with one another in a relaxed environment. I highly recommend Ripen Company if you are looking for a unique team building experience. In addition, her beautiful work is perfect for events!
