It’s the holiday season and I have the PERFECT ingredient to get you in the holiday mood, Roth Grand Cru! Similar to Gruyere, Roth Grand Cru is a rich, full-bodied, one-of-a-kind cheese that puts the “special” in any occasion. And since we all are hoping for a little something special this holiday season, think outside the traditional board and check out these tips on How to Make a Roth Grand Cru Charcuterie WREATH.

Why Roth Grand Cru?
Similar to Gruyere, Roth Grand Cru is made with the freshest Wisconsin milk cultured in imported copper vats (the traditional Swiss way for added flavor) and then carefully aged for 4+ months on wooden boards in cellars in Monroe, Wisconsin. When cheese is made in Wisconsin, you know you can’t go wrong!
Roth Grand Cru is perfect for your Charcuterie WREATH because it pairs so well with other delicious charcuterie favorites such as:
- Fresh apples, pears, grapes
- Almonds, figs, cornichons
- Hard apple cider, amber beer
- Cured meats
You can find this mild, yet flavorful cheese in the deli at your local grocer and use the packaging to inspire your cheese board pairings. I used my family’s favorite fresh fruits, nuts, meats, and specialty herbs to make our Roth Grand Cru Charcuterie WREATH as festive as possible.
How to Make a Charcuterie WREATH
Overwhelmed on how to make a Roth Grand Cru Charcuterie WREATH? Don’t be! It’s simple to build (check out my Instagram stories for inspiration) and easy to incorporate fun elements like star-shaped crackers, fresh rosemary sprigs, as well as red and green ingredients to put a festive spin on your Charcuterie WREATH.
For my Roth Grand Cru Charcuterie WREATH, we used:
- Valley Lahvosh Star Shaped Crackers
- Green Apple
- Red Raspberries
- Dried Cranberries
- Sesame sticks
- Honey rusted peanuts
- Roth Cheese Grand Cru
- Roth Cheese Havarti
- Roth Cheese Cranberry Cinnamon Chevre
Simply find a large, round board (we love this one) and layer it with greenery. Next, add big statement pieces such as star shaped crackers. Next comes medium-sized ingredients such as meats and chunks of Roth Grand Cru. Finally, add colorful details such as berries and nuts atop your wreath. You can add a ribbon if you choose or keep it more modern without. Either way, you have a delicious winner for your holiday spread.
