ENTERTAINING TIPS WITH US

Ultimate Christmas Inspired Cheese Platter

The ultimate platter to serve over the holiday period.

Storage and Serving Your Cheese

Specialty Cheese needs a little tender loving care, to ensure you are serving it at its best and can fully appreciate all its qualities.

Follow our guide on how best to Select, Store & Serve cheese with love!

Selecting
  • Choose soft surface ripened cheese, like Brie, Camembert and Washed Rind cheese, that is close to the Best Before date and therefore at its peak of maturity for best flavour and texture.
  • Select Blue cheese that has an even network of blue veins and no brown or dark grey areas in its body, which is a sign that it is over-mature.
  • Go for Cheddar styles that are labelled Vintage which means they are aged for at least 12 months. They have a crumbly texture and a more developed cheddar ‘bite’.
  • Pick Washed Rind cheese that has a soft orange bloomy rind which is responsible for both its wild, earthy aroma and ripening.
  • Avoid any cheese that looks sweaty, smells of ammonia or displays uncharacteristic moulds or yeasts for that style of cheese.
Storing
  • Remove cheese from refrigerator 1 hour before when serving on a cheese platter.
  • Assemble on large platter so there is plenty of room between cheeses.
  • Serve a separate knife with each cheese.
  • Don’t leave cheese at room temperature for more than 4 hours.
  • Discard cheese that has been out too long or has been over-handled.
