Grazing boards have become the coolest way to serve dinner at events these days. They provide the ultimate snacking experience while making your food look like a work of art. Whether you call it a grazing board, charcuterie board, appetiser platter or a dessert board, they are the hottest party trend in 2020.
Now I know what it's like when you get in the habit of serving the same old thing up when you've got mates over or even just those mid week family meals, things can get a bit boring. But I'm going to show you how easy it is to mix things up and serve things in style. You'll have all your mates instagramming your spread and wanting to know where you got that platter from.
So with summer entertaining finally here let's get outside this weekend, soak up that sunshine and create an Aussie BBQ grazing board. Why not create a Taco Tuesday grazing board for your mid week family dinner. Planning a romantic night of Netflix and chill? 😉 How about creating a beautiful Dessert Grazing Board to share. Whatever you serve up, a beautiful grazing board is the most perfect way to connect with each other this holiday season.

START YOUR NIGHT WITH A CHIP AND DIP GRAZING BOARD
If you're a Mum, your life probably revolves around snacks right?! Well let's kick the boring chip and dip platter to the kerb and have a bit more fun with it.

Kick off your dinner party or event with this fancy yet simple hummus platter. You only need a few ingredients plus a pretty board to chuck it all on and you're good to go.

THE LAMB KOFTA GRAZING BOARD - my personal fav
There's no better combination than lamb, yoghurt and cucumber IMO so lamb kofta is my idea of a perfect grazing platter. And if you're dismissing this because you don't have the time (or the lamb mince - thanks panic buyers) to make your own koftas - I've got you!

The s'mores grazing board will put a smile on everyone's face right now, and we all know how much that is needed!
