The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Cheese Board !!

An easy and delicious cheese board appetizer is perfect for any party; be it a holiday dinner, a weekend get-together or a picnic, a cheese platter has something for everyone.

You can make it simple or fancy, this versatile addition has no limits. 

To make your cheeseboard a hit, try loading it with some famous cheese. We follow the advice of Cheese expert Dan Bliss, in his interview to a popular lifestyle magazine and stick to 3 or 5 varieties at max. 

Some of the popular cheeses are – 

  • Hard cheeses. Such as parmesan, aged cheddar, manchego, and romano.
  • Semi-firm cheeses. Gouda, muenster, gruyere, butterkäse, and cheddar jack cheese 
  • Soft cheeses.
  • Crumbly cheeses. 
  • Blue cheese. 
  • Cheese dip

The most loved combination of 3 variants is a Hard Cheese, a soft cheese and blue cheese. You cannot go wrong with this mix.

Apart from Cheese, a perfect board could have nuts, crackers, cured meat, dry fruits and fresh fruits such as Grapes. Grapes are used to cleanse the palate so that you can enjoy the taste of each cheese. 

Pear and apple are also good fruit options. 

Some people also like to finish their cheeseboards by adding a few spreads like jam or a fancy mustard or simple honey.

Another very important aspect of a cheeseboard is its Presentation. Pick a board that does justice to your selection and make it classy by adding a cheese knife to cut and one to spread.
