How to Assemble a Great Cheese Platter

Cheese, Salami, and Nuts

 Pick 3-4 Cheeses to serve. A general rule is 4 ounces a person but it depends on the time of day and what else you are serving with it.

Vary the consistency of the cheese: a soft fresh cheese, a semi hard and a harder cheese like Parmesan.
Provide three different milk types: a goat, a sheep and a cow’s milk for variety.

Serve at room temperature. Leave the wedges whole with a knife to cut, or cut a few slices to get it started. Decorate the platter with grapes, cucumbers, apple slices…
A nice jam to serve with it would be fun, like Laura Ann’s Blackberry Bayleaf or Raspberry Habanero! Serve with fresh bread. You can also add some simple crackers or a nice crostini.
Open a bottle of wine!!
