1) choose cheese

To create the perfect cheese board, choose each type of cheese (soft, semi-soft, semi-hard, and hard), add crusty bread and biscuits to serve the cheese, and add some fruit and nuts. For fruits, you can choose from fresh fruits (such as strawberries or figs), dried fruits (such as cranberries and apricots) or sauces (such as chutney or candied fruit). Nuts also provide a bit of a crunch to the cheese board. Popular favorites include sugar walnuts or roasted hazelnuts.


When choosing a cheese on a cheese board, you can choose from four interesting looking cheeses or a theme board, choose cheese from one area, or pick a cheese from animals such as cows, goats or sheep.


2) choose board

To supply your cheese, a wide variety of surfaces can be used, including slate, marble or wood cutting boards, as long as it is large enough to accommodate all cheeses and decorations. For best flavor, cheese should be used at room temperature so that all cheese is taken out of the refrigerator an hour before serving. When assembling the cheese plate, arrange the cheeses in the order from the softest to the boldest and add decorations to the spaces between the cheeses. Finally add bread and cookies to prevent them from becoming overly dry or stale. Finally, each cheese is served with a cheese knife, and if the cheese board is used for parties, labels are added to help the guests identify each type of cheese.
