A food board is the perfect solution for fun get-togethers for mothers, grandmother's, aunts and special friends, All the boards are mouth-watering, but as a chocolate lover my personal favorite is the Valentine's Day chocolate boards. Oh my word! I was in heaven just looking at the pages. "Around the Board" will be published March 29th. I can't wait to get mine! Thank you NetGalley and DK, for allowing me to review this exciting new e-book. This book is amazing!

    Around the Board was the second book about entertaining on boards and platters that I had read in the space of two weeks. I was really eager to see how this particular book distinguished itself from the Chronicle Books book that I had at my house and the Clarkson Potter book that I had read the week before. The first thirty or so pages are about “The Art of the Board,” which provides the foundational knowledge and skills to execute the fifty or so different boards in the book. The basic philosop Around the Board was the second book about entertaining on boards and platters that I had read in the space of two weeks. I was really eager to see how this particular book distinguished itself from the Chronicle Books book that I had at my house and the Clarkson Potter book that I had read the week before. The first thirty or so pages are about “The Art of the Board,” which provides the foundational knowledge and skills to execute the fifty or so different boards in the book. The basic philosophy of this book is that a board should be accessible, approachable, and personal. The Pairing Guide on page 15 is almost worth the price of admission because it catalogs the complementary and contrasting pairings for each of the five most common cheeses. Other random pairing charts are sprinkled throughout the book, including one for sparkling wines and cheeses, one for all types of wines and cheeses, and one for beers and cheeses. The remaining 150 or so pages are divided by season into four sections, beginning with Winter. Each section starts with a page about the pantry for that season and a board based on the seasonal pantry. Each arrangement is basically built from cheese, meat, accoutrements, produce, and crunch. There are no measurements, although the author does include recommendations about serving sizes in the foundational chapter. Sometimes the requirements list also calls out supplies, like toothpicks, skewers, or cutters of a certain shape. Since the author is the self-proclaimed Cheese Board Queen, the majority of the arrangements in this book are variations on what a reader would normally conceive of as a cheese board or a charcuterie board. There are also chocolate themed dessert boards, fruit boards, antipasto boards, a Build Your Own Burger board, and Mediterranean mezze boards in the mix as well. To be clear, this book is predominantly about pairing and styling cheese, meat, and produce into arrangements that feed four to six people. There are a few basic recipes, like holiday baked Brie, Swiss fondue, whipped feta, quick strawberry jam, and beer cheese; however, this is not a book to buy for its recipes. For example, there isn’t even a chocolate fondue recipe for the St Valentine’s Day Chocolate Fondue Board; it just requires melting chocolate discs in a bowl. The instructions for the arrangements typically just require washing and cutting produce, slicing cheese and meats, arranging everything on a board, and the garnishing with fresh herbs. Overall, if you are looking to make a quick and pretty board from easily obtainable ingredients, then this is the book for you. I received this book as a digital advance reader copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. I have yet to attempt any recipes from this book, but I will update this review when I do.

I appreciate Emily’s creativity, willingness to “think outside the box” and fun approach to food. Finally, I think this book would make an excellent gift for so many occasions (wedding/engagement, housewarming, Mother’s Day, etc.!) and can’t wait to share it with others in my life.

    I won a free copy from a Goodreads giveaway and I'm glad I did. I wouldn't have picked this book up for myself since I'm a vegetarian, but honestly, this book gives so many options and ideas, it kind of rocks! From ideas on holiday and seasonal cheese boards, to lots of info on pairings, this book is the ultimate cheese plate book. Great gift for friends who snack.

I love a good board, but the price is shocking at times and with this book, I can so make any board of my dreams. Making them seasonal makes so much sense: I am especially enamoured of the Halloween board as I am a lover of that "holiday" more than any other. The instructions are easy to understand and you can get boarding in no time flat: buy a nice board that will work for all occasions and skip the black plastic one from the deli...your guests and tummy will be impressed!!! p.s. If I had to base my review on the ease of getting this to download and read, you would get a 0 star rating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Around the Board is a well written and beautifully illustrated guide to charcuterie and cheese boards by Emily Delaney. Due out 29th March 2022 from Penguin Random House on their DK imprint, it's 192 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats. DK's dependability with nonfiction is well documented. They're really good with illustrated how-to guides and this one is no exception. The author presents a comprehensive general introduction full of basic instructions on how to make boards, how to choose ingredients, how to serve them and more. The introduction is followed by seasonal specialty servings (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall) full of appropriate and attractive food, well curated and presented. The book is full to bursting with useful tables and choices; showing what cheese goes with which fruit and showing readers how to pair ingredients to show them at their best. I'm generally fairly clueless about *what* will complement *which* and I felt that the information contained here gave me enough confidence to make a somewhat educated choice as far as arrangement and choices. Not just enough with specific advice about which types of cheese and meat to provide, the author goes a step further and shows how to slice, fold, and prepare meats and cheeses so that they're accessible and portable for serving. Each of the specific board tutorials in the book contains an introduction, a bullet point shopping list, a tutorial for building the recipe, (with ingredients on a color photo showing how to build it), and suggestions for pairings of food for flavor and texture. All the photos in the book are large, high contrast, and in color, without hands or anything in the way. Many of the ingredients will be easy to find at any large supermarket or box-store. Some of the more specialized cheeses and charcuterie will require mail order or access to a large urban area, or specialist grocer. Serving suggestions are beautifully styled and attractive (it's the high point of the book for me). Five stars. This would make a great choice for library acquisition, for the home cook, or possibly as a thoughtful hostess gift. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

This book would be a great gift along with a board or some really cute containers to put on a board. The combinations of cheese, meat, fruit and nuts that Emily uses are amazing and look really appetizing. The presentations on the boards are just beautiful. Color is used to really enhance each board, It makes me want to get a board and start building. The organization of the book is by season and each season starts out with a list of potential items available during that season. There are boards for every holiday, for movie night, for picnics and everything in between. Emily shares rules for how much meat and cheese to plan for depending on the number of people you will be feeding. Which really would help you know how much to buy and how much to put on the board. The photos are just beautiful and also have a purpose - they show you how to build the board with the items recommended for that board. The first photo shows the board ready to serve. The second picture shows the board labeled so you know what is at each spot on the board. There are recipes in the book for dips, dipped fruit, jam, etc. There are descriptions of cheeses and meats and how to use them. Some I have heard of and others I have never tried. There are pairings for wine and beer. There is a shopping list for each board divided up into cheese, meat, produce, crunch and accouterments. If there is something on the list you cannot find or do not like, then you could use the seasonal list at the beginning of that season and pick something else.

Desserts, appetizers, main meals, parties and holidays are all covered. There is even a helpful discussion on which beverages best compliment the board and the ingredients chosen. Cheeses and meats are explained as well as how to pair and style. The photos are just as inspiring as the dish being served. Emily Delaney’s Around the Board is an incredibly useful book in any kitchen that enjoys creating colorful, expressive, and tasteful food boards.

    I've read, cooked, and reviewed A LOT of books about boards and building them. What makes this one stand out particularly is how Emily shows you how to build that board, just the way she has it pictured. I've built a lot of boards/tried to make them pretty like the picture, and sometimes it works out. With her guide, it looks that way every single time. I also like how each season is broken out and includes a pantry for each season. Making "The Boardament" was really fun and one I will do again I've read, cooked, and reviewed A LOT of books about boards and building them.

The snow day fondue board was really fun- we did it on a particularly crummy day and it made it really enjoyable. Ever wonder how they make salami roses and perfect proscuitto crinkles? Look no further. Emily has you covered. This is a very enjoyable book and one that is particularly good for beginners or those looking to have photo worthy boards that they don't have to try to figure out.

    I read this on Kindle so I'm not sure if it applies to the physical book but the format here bothers me for some reason. First, i find everything so twee and basic - do I really need to know what cheese knives look like? or what color different beers are? and do I need a full sized page of what salami looks like? The vibe I get from this book is too much hand-holding... And then there's the format for each board: a top shot of the board with numbers on each item corresponding to what that item is I read this on Kindle so I'm not sure if it applies to the physical book but the format here bothers me for some reason.

    I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was around 3.5 stars for me. Unlike other cheese board plates this book really focuses on cheese. Maybe the first third of the book talks about cheese and how to pair them with different foods. The rest of the book gives examples and information on how to plate food, different supplies, and themes. The book shares different dips and other foods and talks about how to make everything look nice. There are so I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I recommend this to the charcuterie lover or friend who loves to entertain.

    DK has outdone themselves, again! Not only is there basic information for how to "design" and create Charcuterie / Crudites boards, etc, but there are tip & tricks for how to make them more presentable, suggestions for wine or beer pairings, honey pairings, and more! The book is organized by season, beginning with winter. There are suggestions for seasons and holidays, suggested shopping lists, color photographs for how to build boards, recipes for things like Swiss Fondue and Beer Cheese Dip.

    Using boards/platters to serve food both at home for you family and when your entertaining is a fun way to be fun and creative with food. This particular book shows the best way to plan your boards by using foods that are currently in season. There are also different theme boards presented such as, my favorite, the dessert board! I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this cookbook.

    Yes - get it. I happened to compare two charcuterie books at the same time. This was by far and away the better resource for doing boards. I like that with a few exception, it mainly was charcuterie. It wasn't just prettily presented food. I think there is a science behind charcuterie. I loved the different seasonal boards and each one fulfilled that basic definition of what charcuterie is. I received an ARC from Netgalley to help me prepare my honest review. Yes - get it.

I learned all about different cheeses and the French cornichons, etc. I read this book pretty much in one night and in the morning before work.

    First words that come to mind when I started looking through "Around the board" was whimsical and beautiful. I usually like all cookbooks I review, but this one really knocks it out of the park! The images do not do it justice as an ebook. Seeing these artful boards in glossy pages would make the best addition for any coffee table. The colors of every board are so eye catching and pleasing. The description of common charcuterie meats and cheeses is thorough for any novice.
