Looking to create a simple yet impressive cheese board for an upcoming family gathering or for an intimate dinner with some close friends? Then this simple cheese board, featuring assorted flavors of Cabot cheeses, as well as some terrific accompaniments, is exactly what you need! Feel free to share this simple cheese board with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter once you’ve made it.
For this simple cheese board, you’ll need plenty of cheese: 2-3 bars of Cabot Sharp Cheddar or 3 Year Cheddar plus assorted flavors of Cabot Cheddar, such as Cabot Smoky Bacon Cheddar, Cabot Garlic & Herb, and others provided at the end of this post.
You’ll also want to select a variety of accompaniments to serve alongside the various cheeses. Fresh and/or dried fruits (e.g. figs, pears, and cherries), crunchy nuts, pickles, and cured meats (e.g. pepperoni, salami, and prosciutto) are great options. Also be sure to offer a selection of breads, such as sliced baguette, bread sticks, and crackers in different shapes and sizes.
Remove all of the cheese from the refrigerator an hour before you plan on serving to bring to room temperature. Place the cheese on your cheese board and surround the piles of cheese with the contrasting flavors and textures of your various accompaniments (e.g. fruits, nuts, meats, etc.), as well as an assortment of breads and/or crackers. To create a bountiful display, nestle everything closely together.
You’re almost ready to go! Take the time to label each cheese so that guests won’t have to keep asking or try to guess themselves.
