How should I present my cheese board?
Create the perfect cheese board by choosing a number of different types of cheese. For the ideal balance of flavors, we recommend a mix of a goat's or sheep's cheese, a cheese with a bloomy rind, a washed rind cheese, a blue cheese and a hard or semi-hard cheese. Serve your cheese with delicious garnishes like seasonal fruit (fresh figs or passion fruit), grapes, olives, cashews, crackers and almond bread.
Serve an uneven number of cheeses: 3, 5 or 7. Assume that each person will probably eat two to three ounces of each cheese. Serve your cheeses at room temperature for an optimal taste experience.
Last but not least, place a separate knife next to each piece of cheese to avoid cross-contamination and keep flavors pure. Every cheese has its own individual structure and is easiest to cut with its designated knife.
