1. We are, of course, the cheese capitol of the US, despite California’s claims. There is a reason Packer fans where a large wedge of cheese on their heads, and it isn’t because it matches the uniforms. (Although it does, actually.)One word. 2. Thanksgiving. Did anyone else gorge themselves beyond comprehension? I mean, besides my husband. Because I’m always very careful on Thanksgiving NOT to do that. I wouldn’t want to make myself sick for the REAL holiday - which is, of course, Black Friday.
- You should serve at least three types of cheese; which should include a variety of flavors and textures. At least: one soft (spreadable), One semi-soft or semi-hard, and one hard. If you are afraid of the “crumbly” cheeses, like bleu or stilson, you can opt for a smoky variety of a more tried and true cheese.
- You should use a different knife to cut each cheese to avoid cross contamination of flavors. So provide a knife for each cheese on the tray.
- The best thing to serve with cheese is crusty french bread. But you can also use crackers, as per usual.
- The best fruits to use are grapes, apples, pears and raspberries. But you should always opt for what you can get locally in season.
- Serve nuts as well - at least two types, like almonds or walnuts.
- Don’t forget to provide cheese forks, tongs or small sticks.
