From phrases like ‘Ok Boomer’ to Gen Z’s shrinking attention spans, generations love to tease one another, particularly on social media.
While they may not agree on fashion trends or font sizes, there’s one thing they can agree on, cheeseboards are the best way to entertain for the holidays.
This season, all four generations are going head-to-head in the ultimate charcuterie showdown, each creating festive cheeseboards that speak to the traits of their generation.
So, who will reign supreme? This cheesy showdown is one for the ages – literally!
GEN Z (@loganfabbro): Best known for her role on The Next Step, Logan knows her generation tends to have shorter attention spans and moves on from one obsession to the next in record time, so she made three different boards each one ready in 10 minutes: the first is an air-fried Castello Brie (TikTok hack,) followed by a twist on the viral butter board using Velvet Blue (the perfect entry-level blue cheese,) and a minimalist board featuring Havarti, Gouda, Tickler Cheddar and Castello’s cream cheese rings

MILLENNIAL (@avaahblackwell): Avaah is a Canadian stunt woman and actress on Star Trek Discovery and like her generation, she’s collaborative and all about the big show. She crafted Havarti Party trees by stacking small slices on top of each other, cut a star shape from the brie and filled it with jam, turned the Taste Hawaii and Taste Mexico cream cheese rings into holiday wreaths, and cubed some Tickler Cheddar and Gouda for an Insta-Worthy board that has something for everyone.

GEN X (@cinqfourchettes): Nancy’s generation saw the Internet coming, so they’ve become very adaptable and inventive, as seen in her creative approach to cheeseboards which she complements with attractive ‘cheeseboard’ cups. These allow for unique customization and are COVID friendly too. Crumble some Tickler at the bottom, add skewers with your favourite ingredients, and stuff some dates with Danish Blue cheese for the perfect sweet and salty pairing.
BOOMER (@alabouroflife): Linda is a fun-loving Boomer who knows her generation tends to be crafty and loves spending time with their grandchildren, so she created a cheeseboard complete with a Santa made from Brie and Havarti that she can make with the little ones. And to keep her older kids happy, she included Castello’s crunchy Havarti, Tangy Tickler Cheddar, and Danish Blue for exciting flavour sensations everyone will love.
