A beautifully built cheese platter is an excellent addition to just about any entertaining occasion! Creating the perfect spread has never been easier. Just follow these 6 simple steps!

1.) Mix It Up

When planning an event with cheese, choose at least three to five cheeses of varying milk sources, colors and textures. There are also different categories you could choose 1 of each from: fresh, bloomy, semi-soft, hard and blue.

Try this combo for your cheese platter: Camembert, Parmigiano, Gouda, Brie and Stilton

2.) All In Good Measure

The general rule is to plan on a little less than one ounce of cheese per person per type of cheese for a cocktail party. If the cheese board is the cheese course of a dinner party, two ounces of cheese per person is appropriate. If your cheese board is the focus of the party plan on four to size ounces per person.

3.) Timing is everything

The textures, tastes and aromas of specialty cheeses are at their finest at room temperature, so be sure to take your cheese out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes to one hour before serving.

4.) Let The Cheese Be The Star

Choose breads with little or no extra ingredients like baguettes (both sweet and sour), plain crackers, breadsticks or water crackers.

5.) Start Milky, Finish Strong

Beginning at the six o’clock position and going clockwise, arrange cheeses from mildest to strongest. For example, start with a soft, fresh goat’s milk cheese, then to Brie, then move into more flavorful washed rind, hard and finally blue cheeses.

6.) Slice It Up Right

The goal here is to make sure each cheese portion has a part of the rind. Accordingly, softer cheeses should be sliced lengthwise into wedges with a butter knife or small paring knife, while harder cheeses can be sliced with a chef knife or microplane slicer pulled across the flat surface to obtain paper-thin slices.
