The perfect cheese tray

>> Sunday, December 27, 2009

No matter what the occasion, a cheese tray is the perfect add to a party. When you are asked to tote the cheese tray, some may wonder what types of cheese to bring and how best to arrange the cheese. I always volunteer to put together this wonderful appetizer as I hate walking into a room and finding the cubed yellow and white cheese pre-prepared from the local grocery store. There are so many varieties of delicious cheese that can be enjoyed and I have found that most people don't step out of their comfort zone to do so.
Some of my favorite cheeses for the cheese tray are:
  • Goat
  • Cheddar (this is a safe one everyone knows)
  • Fontal
  • Gournay
  • Brie
  • Chevre
  • Gruyere
When arranging your cheese, use berries to add color and fill in the void space between the cheeses. Make sure to label the cheeses so people know what they are trying. I also like adding a small dish of chocolate to the tray as a complimentary flavor. Also, don't forget the wafer-like crackers! Enjoy!

This is the perfect cheese tray! Thanks for the information. I can't wait to make my own tray for New Years. :)
