Cheese Plate Tips

  1. 1. Cheese Plate 101 10/30/2013 1
  2. 2. Tip #1: Be interesting. Mix milks, flavors, textures & colors. Pick cheeses that will be memorable or have a broad appeal. Ask your cheesemonger for her picks. 10/30/2013 2
  3. 3. Tip #2: Give us some space. Make sure to have a platter or board large enough to hold the cheeses. Or do butcher paper. Or do multiple plates. Do not overcrowd the cheese plate or overwhelm your guests. Have separate knives. 10/30/2013 3
