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.
