A Grazing Table is a unique and beautiful alternative to traditional catering. Everything is artfully and bountifully laid out on one table (any length) where guests are invited to mingle and graze. It instantly sets a relaxed and festive atmosphere where people are really able to come together and celebrate. It is best used as heavy hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour or as a centerpiece to your lunch or dinner table with the accompaniment of a light meal.
WHAT IS A GRAZING TABLE?
All of our Cheese Boards are served on a single-use wooden board. These are only intended to be used once and should be disposed of after use. If you'd like to upgrade to a hand-crafted walnut + maple board that you can keep after you enjoy your Cheese Board, please let us know!
CAN I KEEP THE WOODEN cheese BOARD AFTER USE?
YES! We would love nothing more than to work with you to craft the ideal Grazing Table or Cheese Board for your event. We warmly welcome all input and will do our very best to accommodate any special requests.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE MY GRAZING TABLE OR Cheese BOARD?
Nope! We will handle everything that is needed to make your grazing table shine.
DO I NEED TO DECORATE THE TABLE?
Yes. We do our best to accommodate most dietary restrictions. Send us a note and we will tailor a board or table just for you!
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN DIETS?
Unfortunately our food is not prepared in an allergen-free environment and we cannot guarantee our food to be completely free of allergens. ANYONE WITH SEVERE FOOD ALLERGIES SHOULD NOT CONSUME OUR FOOD.
WHAT ABOUT ALLERGIES?
Depending on the size of event, we travel as far as you need us! There are no travel fees within the East Bay. We charge $1.00 per mile, round trip, for events outside of the East Bay Area. Please inquire for more details! #havecheesewilltravel
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL and what are your travel fees?
Ideally your Grazing Table will be located in a central area where your guests will feel invited to gather together and graze. We recommend that your table be set in a cool location away from direct sunlight. Another show-stopping option, and our personal favorite, is to have the Grazing Table as the centerpiece of your guests’ rectangular seated tables - guests can sit and graze while engaging in conversation and celebration. Paired with a light meal, the Grazing Table makes for the perfect lunch or dinner event.
WHERE SHOULD THE GRAZING TABLE BE LOCATED?

- Small Gatherings -
- Large Gatherings -
All of our suggested serving sizes are intended for appetizer portions, if you are looking to serve our boards or plates as a full meal we recommend that you size up. For example: our small cheese board serves up to 4 people. This means that it would be a heavy appetizer for 2 people + a light appetizer for 4 - perfect if you are serving alongside additional appetizers or a light meal.
Can you tell me more about the cheese board serving sizes?
Where do you deliver? How much is delivery?
We are based in Oakland and travel about 35 miles in all directions for Small Gathering orders over $600. We charge $15 for deliveries within 5 miles of our shop in Downtown Oakland, and $3 per mile (+ bridge toll) for deliveries outside of that radius. We are happy to travel farther for custom orders, please inquire for details.
