Holiday Entertaining: “Say Cheese”

Holiday Entertaining is upon us, so grab your wooden cheese boards & lets cut the cheese (wait, no...). Here are my easy rules for creating the perfect Cheese Tray:

Try to include a variety of cheeses: Soft, Firm, Aged, Blue, Goat, with a selection of crackers and breads.

Remember to separate knives for cutting and spreading and always add a sweet & salty element: Below I've chosen a fig-jam with some cured meats and almonds for crunch. A fruit element helps round out the tray: From apple to pear to apricot to grapes...

Remove the cheese from refrigerator one hour before serving & watch your guests delight in exploring different textures and tastes. Cheers, to Fromage!
