Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I need to order?

We require a 24 hour minimum lead time on all orders, but we recommend placing a few days in advance to ensure your order is prioritized. 

Do you have vegan/vegetarian boards?

Yes. We offer boards for nearly all dietary restrictions, including nut allergies, gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc. If you have questions regarding certain items being included in your board, please contact us via email, or place a note in the Dietary Restriction section of the order form. 

Can I keep a board in the fridge overnight? What is the lifespan of a cheeseboard?

We recommend enjoying the board immediately after receiving it. Cheese is intended to be eaten at room temperature, however leaving the box out for more than 3-4 hours can lead to spoiling. Additionally, we discourage against placing it in the fridge overnight as that will prevent freshness and ruin presentation.

How far in advance do I need to book an event with you?

Our grazing tables are extremely popular and are booking now for 6 months in advance. To ensure Sophisticated Spreads can be a part of your special day, we recommend emailing us at emmy@sophisticatedspreads.net as soon as possible with information regarding the venue, time of event, size of event, and any other relevant details.

Where do you source most of your supplies?

We pride ourselves in partnering with companies that promote sustainability, such as Nichols Farms pistachios that use drought resistant farming techniques, as well as small artisan farmsteads that know every animal’s name on the farm, like Tomales Farmstead Creamery. We also support small businesses in Los Angeles such as Love and Sugar Cakery bakery for our dessert spreads, as well as local bakery artist Sara Malconian. 

How do you prepare your boards?

Our employees have their ServSafe Certification and we build our boxes at a local commercial kitchen, where the facility is maintained and approved by the health department. 

Where is your delivery radius / Do you ship boards?

We currently only deliver throughout Los Angeles and Orange County, however we hope to expand soon and ship nationwide in the future! Follow our journey on Instagram to see the next steps for Sophisticated Spread’s growth.
