Building the perfect cheese board can feel daunting. Not only do you have to find cheeses to suit everyone’s preferences, but you have to pair them with precisely the right accompaniments.
We’ll let you in on a little secret: there are no rules. Through January 1, 2020, Montchevre is taking this bold claim to the next level and inviting chèvre fans to build their own virtual cheese board with whatever pixelated pairing their hearts desire. And the icing on the proverbial cheese cake? Each randomly-selected winner will have their pick of one of three prizes! If that doesn’t help ring in the holiday spirit, we don’t know what will.
Velvety and melt-in-your-mouth, Montchevre goat cheeses are the perfect tool for your cheese board arsenal. The clean white paste of the Natural, the savory smack of the Garlic & Herbs, and the subtly sweet, berry-coated Cranberry Cinnamon offer plenty of contrast when placed together on a platter. Where you can get really jazzy with texture is through accompaniments.
For this beautiful yet totally achievable cheese board, we were inspired first by color. Reds, greens, and gold tones play nicely off the snowy chèvre, and allude to this season of holiday cheer. Crunch was a necessity, which is how we landed on earthy beet chips and hearty rosemary-raisin crackers. Basque peppers provided a little kick, and apricot preserves smoothed things out with a sweet nectar note.
Now try your hand at Montchevre’s BYO Cheeseboard, armed with the knowledge that fortune favors the bold. Who knows, you might just come out a winner.
