A visually-led cookbook with recipes for 40 easy, attractive platters or boards for every meal occasion or gathering. Each board ‘recipe’ is presented as a list with minimal method; each includes tips on arranging, a (more traditional) recipe for one of the items featured on the board, or a drink to pair with it. There are an additional 10 recipes for essentials - infused honey, homemade cheese straws, candied pistachios - that take any board to the next level with a homemade touch.

Introductory content includes suggestions for materials that can be used as a board; how to mix textures, flavours, or come up with a theme; assembling, arranging, and portioning (for 2 to 100 people). Every board will be photographed, and many of the recipes will be photographed for hero shots. Each board recipe includes a drink pairing and a meat pairing (Shelly is a vegetarian, Wyatt is her boyfriend who eats meat).

Industry Reviews

"What I admire most about Platters and Boards are its easy-to-follow recipes, because putting good looking spreads together is harder than it looks [...] There is a recipe for everyone in this book."
-- Sunday Times Ireland

Pretty cover


Was hoping to be able to create platters and boards that would taste good and look good. This book didn't really provide me with that. The best picture was on the cover and all of it seemed to be vegetarian, even though mention was made of her meat eating husband
