Help with Cheese Platters

lilgi | | Jan 11, 2011 04:48 AM

Cheese has become so important because of the amount of vegans/vegetarians, diabetics, and less dessert eaters who would rather substitute with cheeses after dinner. I have always put out cheese in a non-creative sort of way (brie, cheddar with grape clusters on the side) or left it up to someone else or caterer.

I'd like to learn more about the cheese groups and creative ways of serving. There are so many ways of doing this, and I only know that like cheeses should be together.

What are your favorites, how do you like to serve cheese for gatherings? What kind of serving trays/platters do you use? Any websites, articles or threads that you know of related to this would be a great help.

I will list my favorite cheeses, and as you can see they are all different types. There might be a way to bring these cheeses together so that they don't clash with one another, maybe by adding some that I haven't tried yet.

My choices are few: Stilton, Cheddar, Gouda, Parmiggiano Reggiano, Manchego, (Brie if I must). I may be forgetting some but would like to add more to this list. I'm looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks all!
