Serving Cheese

Consider the following when serving cheese:

Arrange the plate from mildest to strongest. People eat from left to right or in a clockwise direction so keep this in mind as you arrange your plate.
 

Make sure to choose cheeses with contrasting flavors, shapes, colors, etc. It will create diversity and make the plate look interesting.
 
Be mindful of the presentation that the cheeses will be arranged on. Wooden boards are the most traditional route but marble or ceramic dishes work well too.
 
Bread and crackers are traditionally used, as well as fresh and dried fruits, nuts, and chutneys and pastes such as membrillo or mostarda.
