7 Simple Tips to Create a Great Cheese Plate
Does the cheese counter give you anxiety? Are you worried about pronouncing cheese labels incorrectly? Maybe the monger intimidates you with all their cheesy knowledge? Have no fear, you too can create a great cheese plate -- just follow these 7 simple tips from The Kitchn.
Limit yourself. Think of everything as either aged, soft, firm, or blue. Choose three distinct options that create a variety of textures and flavors. Still feeling overwhelmed? Go with a theme, like Spanish cheeses or different milk types, to reign in all the choices. Don't be afraid to ask questions — if I worked at a cheese shop, you better believe I would have tried everything and have a good recommendation.
