The Cheese Party Tray

Naturally, where there is wine, there is cheese, too. Here are some practical tips to make a delectable cheese platter for your guests...

  • Select several cheeses of different varieties, types and styles. Include contrasting flavors and textures (e.g. Camembert, Gorgonzola, Havarti, Colby and aged Cheddar). It's best to label each type for guests to know.

  • If the party is small, place chunks of cheese on a serving platter and allow guests to cut from a cheese wedge or chunk.

  • If the party is large, allow for smaller servings to maximize the available cheese. For example, cube cheese and stick in toothpicks.

  • Place complementing fruits, crackers and breads near the cheese platter. They will complement the cheese and serve as "extenders" just in case the cheese won't last.

  • How to present cheese? The easiest is to cube and serve slices.

  • It is easier to cut cheese with a cold knife. A nice cut will make the cheese platter look nicer.

  • Make the weather work for you. Cut the cheese early in the morning while it is cool. Refrigerate afterwards and remove only prior to serving.

  • The shape of the cheese will dictate the cut of the cheese. Bars can be sliced into triangles, cubes or smaller bars. Rectangular-shaped cheese can be sliced into cubes, triangles and sticks. Round-shaped cheeses can be sliced into wedges or into pie-slice shapes.
