DIY Artisan Cheese Platter
This contains all the ingredients you need to create a beautiful, delicious Do-It-Yourself Artisan Cheese Platter in your kitchen.
Much like wine, navigating the world of cheese can be intimidating—especially when it comes to entertaining. So you’ll have to trust us when we tell you creating a palatable platter (and throwing a casual get together to boot) is as simple as the cheese-making process itself. All it takes is a bit of know-how and a group of eager tasters (a friendly cheesemonger doesn’t hurt, either). Below is a list of cheese platter ideas to make you look like a pro.
Remove cheese from your refrigerator an hour before serving (colder temperatures mute flavors). On a long table, set up your cheese boards and snacks. Fill a few glasses of bubbly 10 minutes or so before arrival time—it’s festive and encourages guests to sip. Don’t forget to photograph the occasion; saying cheese has never been so apropos. Use our cheese platter ideas as a starter guide for your party. The more fetes you throw, the more confident you’ll feel.
