How to Create the Perfect Cheese Board
Putting together a great cheese board is just a matter of making good choices - choose a variety of flavours, texture and colours, and your guests will rave!
Decide on the number of cheeses you want on your board by the number of people you will be sharing it with, for a small crowd of 3 to 7, three cheeses is plenty. For a catered look, always do odd numbers. There should be some fresh or dried fruit, or a smear of fruit paste to accompany your cheese - and crackers or crusty bread. A handful of walnuts also works well. Adding cured meat is also a great idea.
Present the cheeses in different styles, do some cubed or wedged, some slivered and maybe one, just leave as a whole piece for your guests to cut themselves.
As a wine pairing, a Pinot Noir, a Sauvignon Blanc or a dry rosé.
