With vibrant colored and tasting wine soaked cheddar, rose salumi buds, butter flowers, and a bouquet of accouterments and accents, this board is a walk in a country garden.

To roll the salumi roses, take 4-5 slices of capicola and line them up so they are slightly layered over each other. Fold the row of layered sliced pieces lengthwise and roll into a rose bud.

To make the butter flowers you’ll need a stick of chilled butter and a sharp paring knife. Scrap the knife along the top of the butter creating ribbons. Place the ribbons in a bowl with ice water.

The heat from your hands can start to melt the butter, but placing the butter ribbons in the ice water will keep them from melting.

Take the smallest ribbon and roll to create the center of the flower while adding and layering the other ribbons of butter around it. Place butter flowers in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to plate. You will need to move quickly because the more you handle the butter the warmer it will get from your hands.

Assemble as shown (clockwise left to right): Wine-soaked Cheddar, salumi roses, gooseberries, figs, butter roses, herbs, lavender, chive flowers, pistachios.
