How to create the perfect Christmas cheese board
Here's some more advice on how to execute the perfect Christmas cheese board, from lovefood:
When setting out your cheese board, make sure you leave space to actually cut the cheese. Give them space to breath and for softer cheeses to spread out. Shape and colour should be considered as much as anything else. For instance, perhaps the orange hue of a Shropshire Blue might create a more pleasing contrast compared to the paleness of a white, creamy Stilton.
“My number one rule is to always try cheese before you buy it,” explains Charlie Turnbull, of Turnbull’s Deli, Shaftesbury and Supreme Judge at The World Cheese Awards.
