preparation

1. To create a cheese board that reflects her story, use retro shades of yellow and teal layered with items that mirror key story elements: a beach blanket, picnic basket and signature cat-eye sunglasses.

2. Represent the main characters with Irish and Italian-American touches, like Irish Brown Bread, Castelvetrano olives and fresh tomatoes on the vine. Kumquats add a hint of sweetness and color.

3. Complete the scene with a sumptuous wedge of Traditional Danish Blue, crumbled for sharing, and a crisp bottle of Folie à Deux Chardonnay.
