Add some colour and complimentary flavours to your cheeseboard by incorporating some of the following items:
Roasted nuts - almonds, cashews, chestnuts, walnuts, pistachios.
Olives and tapenades.
Artisanal breads and crackers.
Comfits, honey and chutneys.
Dried fruit - apricots, cranberries and dates.
Fresh fruit - blueberries, blackberries and figs. Fresh seasonal fruit is ideal!
As a rule of thumb, plan on preparing 30-60g (1-2 oz) of each cheese per person.
Temper cheeses by taking them out of the refrigerator up to 45 minutes in advance. Leave rinds on to keep cheese from drying out.
If you have left-over cheese, wrap it in parchment or wax paper and store it in the most humid part of the fridge (usually the vegetable drawer); this will allow the cheese to breathe.
