Cheeses are so wonderful because they are the perfect complementary ingredients; whether that may be in an informal setting like a grilled cheese sandwich or on a hamburger, or something more proper like at a wine tasting.
Cheeses, however, are versatile enough to stand alone, acting as the main component with a supporting cast of accompaniments designed to bring out the best in the cheese. The cheese plate, almost by definition, is a versatile dish. It can be thrown together in a short period of time, or crafted to include a wide range of colors, tastes, and textures. It’s the perfect way to represent just how great cheese can be, and it's fantastic for a party.
