This holiday season, generations are going head to head in a competition where everyone is a winner! From years of poking fun at each other about skinny jeans, side parts, emojis and the size of your text font, it’s not surprising the generations all have a very different take on entertaining too. We are taking a look at how Boomers, Gen X’s, Millennials and Gen Z’s assemble delicious cheese boards.
First up is the Gen Z Minimalist Board – Now you Cheese it, Now you Don’t created by Logan Fabbro, an actress best known for her role on The Next Step. Since Gen Z’s (born between 1997 and 2012) are renowned for having the shortest attention spans, this cheese board is ready in less than 10 minutes. The artsy, not showy board features classic and premium aged cheeses from Canada’s #1 selling specialty cheese brand Castello Cheese like Havarti, Gouda, and Cheddar and is ready in just five minutes!
If you need more options, she also shared two easy (but still looks like you tried) cheese boards that make a delicious Castello cheese the hero ingredient. One is Air Fried Brie (a TikTok hack) and the other is a delicious, tangy blue cheese board. Check out all of the delicious options for holiday entertaining below:
Gen Z Minimalist Board – Now you Cheese it, Now you Don’t

Assemble cheese blocks onto a wooden board and slice the first few pieces of each. Add cream cheese wings and fill the spaces with fresh grapes and crackers. Create your own fun cheese labels to stick into each block.

Castello Vintage Gouda: Nutty flavour, smooth texture and sweet caramel notes
Castello Velvet Blue: A milder and creamier cousin to the original Danish Blue – the perfect entry level blue cheese.
