It’s traditional to offer one hard cheese, one blue cheese, one semi-hard cheese, one “stinky” cheese, one soft blooming rind, and one herbal cheese (Boursin® is the perfect choice).
Cheese plates should be served at room temperature. This allows the complexity of each cheese’s flavor to open up.
A well-rounded cheese plate features cheese and cheese carriers with a variety of textures. Consider serving rice crackers, pumpernickel or rye toasts, or kale chips with your traditional baguette.
Cali Julz says. ..We enjoyed this spread on Christmas day. Our traditional Italian dinner included antipasto so this spread played well with the meats and olives. While many cheeses are normally eaten. .. our family prefer meat so we only had one other cheese and crackers. Such a great texture and the flavor was on point. The whole family enjoyed the spread on all the meats & it complimented the olives as well.
