Holiday Entertaining 101 - Building an Instagram-Worthy Cheeseboard


What's this workshop about?

Learn the art of building a stunning cheeseboard with Dimple Dhabalia of Roots in the Clouds  During this interactive workshop, Dimple will cover the basics of building a gorgeous, Instagram-worthy cheeseboard for your next gathering, leading you through her process for selecting the base to builds on, to how she chooses the cheeses and accompaniments.  Dimple will also discuss some of her favorite wine and cocktail pairings and provide tips on taking some of the stress out of entertaining.  Enjoy some prosecco and pinot noir and gluten-free crackers baked in-house by The Red Bandana Baker with some delectable cheeses at peak perfection.  You'll end the evening feeling confident in your new role as a Chief Cheeseboard Artist and walk away with some goodies including a mini board that you built and a step-by-step guide to help you create these boards at home!
