Do you enjoy hosting gatherings with friends, family, and colleagues? If you plan these fun events, whether once in a while or frequently, you’ll want to be sure to always include a gourmet cheese platter in your food offerings for your guests to enjoy. Our platter includes a wonderful combination of fresh fruit and vegetables, smoked meat, nuts, crackers, and a fantastic selection of cheeses. Know anyone else who enjoys hosting gatherings as much as you do? Be sure to share this easy cheese platter with them on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter – they will thank you for it!
Putting together a gourmet cheese platter is super simple – the key is to get a good variety of quality food items to include. While you can pick and choose according to your own tastes and preferences, we’ve selected to use sliced cucumbers, sliced heirloom tomatoes, blueberries, smoked meat/salami, crackers, pickled dilly beans, nuts, spicy mustard, and three types of cheese: 1-2 bars of Cabot Farmhouse Reserve Cheddar, or Cabot 2 Year Cheddar, Cabot 5 Year Cheddar, Vermont Creamery Coupole (aged goat cheese), and 1 bar of Cabot Hot Habanero Cheddar.
Once you have everything you want to include in your gourmet cheese platter, you’ll want to bring all of the cheeses to room temperature first, then place them on a cheese board. Surround the cheese with piles of other foods and breads/crackers for variety, as suggested above.

I love the combination of fresh veggies, fruit and my favorite smoked meat and aged Cabot cheddar for this cheese board! The fresh veggies add an unexpected crunch that serves as a healthier addition as well. I will be making this for all of my holiday gatherings 🙂
