This is by far the easiest and most impressive party appetizer ever! Here are our tips for putting it all together.
Cheese is always a great way to start off any party. It’s easy, affordable, and makes everyone feel special! This time of year we’re all looking for something different so why not try out some cheeses on your guests?
There are plenty that will be sure to please even the most die-hard professionals in this department because they can’t get enough variety when it comes down right now – which means you’ll have more than just recovered from hosting an amazing dinner party by Saturday night (or Friday if those are more up your alley).
Hosting a cheese platter is an easy way to make your guests feel like they’ve been transported away from reality. If you’re looking for something more than just the basics, consider adding in some seasonal additions, and BOOM! You just got yourself one happy partygoer with this simple but elegant dish that will never disappoint – especially when it comes time for dessert later on down onstage.
Of course, do not forget to purchase a cute cheese board, like this bamboo, f.e.:
Cheese platters are a great way to show off your cheese-loving skills. However, it can be difficult if you’re not an expert at choosing what type of milk will go best with each variety! The more information on the boards about how much age matters when tasting different types or styles (from soft and creamy through blue) as well as hints like “cut into smaller pieces” -the better chance people have avoided making mistakes during this impressive snack course
It may seem overwhelming to try new things but don’t worry because there’s plenty here that even beginners could enjoy.
There are so many excellent options when it comes to choosing a delicious and versatile cheese for your next party. You can’t go wrong with any of these tried-and-true favorites:
A great choice is the elegant Bucheron (it’s an extra creamy version). If you prefer something milder, try Humboldt Fog – its tempting blue line tracing through the center will make anyone want another slice! Another popular variety worth considering would be Rivers Edge Up In Smoke; wrapped in smoked maple leaves this hardworking goat makes sure we don’t forget about fall or winter platters at all.
Blue cheeses are a must-have for any cheese platter, but they’re often not the most popular among guests. This means you should typically only put out one type of blue—usually Bayley Hazen or Rogue Creamery’s Smokey Blue (depending on preference). Other good options include peppy Roquefort and pungent Stilton.
Creamy, dreamy cheeses are always crowd-pleasers. We like to use Brillat Savarin or Nettle Meadow Kunik for their super-creaminess and bite on the cheese wheel respectively; if you want something more mild but still delicious checkout Taleggio (goats milk) which can be eaten any time of day! For an even creamier experience try Harbison from Jasper Hill Creamery – it’s so rich that once sliced off the top & dip away…
You can’t go wrong with a hard, aged cheese such as Cabot Clothbound Cheddar or Tickler. These cheeses have sophisticated flavor and an intense crystallized texture that will make your guests swoon over how much they’re enjoying themselves! For something milder yet still delicious for everyone in attendance try nutty Gruyère or Manchego – made from sheep’s milk these Spanish counterparts to French Novellette offer their own unique taste because of the lackates added during curdling which gives it more character than some other types might possess.
Offer a variety of crackers to go along with your cheese, including one crusty bread (ideally olive or baguette) and some types that are lightly salted. Water would be best for thirst-quenching needs but if you don’t have time then try these homemade Pistachio Raspberries & Macadamia Nut Crisps instead! For gluten-free options consider Mary’s Gone Crackers as well as simple rice crispins – avoid garlic flavors though since they will overwhelm what little flavor there is in this dish overall.
Add Marcona almonds or nuts, as it’s nice to have some crunch on the dish and something pickled like Castelvetrano olives will balance out all that rich dairy goodness! For an easy upgrade, you can also toss in strips dipped into acidic ingredients such as thyme leaves for added flavor before letting them sit overnight so they become more powerful tasting—and better yet: add these fiery additions right after inverting over some honeycomb pieces at just enough time since their natural sweetness has been lost due to soaking up moisture while waiting.
Cheese boards are the perfect way to show your guests that you put some thought into their meals. Not only are they beautiful, but they’re also functional and can be used as a serving tray for other items on the table.
