|So here are the basics on Cutting, Layout, Storage / Handling|
| Cutting: Most cheeses are easier to cut when cold. Hard, grating cheeses are easier to cut when at room temperature.|
Cut into small wedges shortly prior to serving to prevent drying out.
Soft cheeses are best left in their original form and served with a spreading knife to enhance the presentation.
Layout / Arrangement: Place cheese on the board alternating colors, textures and flavors. Remember to serve blues LAST to avoid overpowering the palate.
Leave a portion uncut to display cheeses in natural form.
Fill the board’s empty spaces with accompaniments
Wines should be served slightly cool Whites 50- 55/ Reds 60 – 65
Serve Largers between 42 – 48 / ales between 44 – 52
Storage / Handling: Leftover cheeses can be stored for up to two weeks for softs and 4-6 weeks for hard cheeses.
Wrap in Press & Seal Plastic wrap (my favorite)
Cheese absorbs flavors easily so keep away from aromatic foods in the fridge – if you have a separate drawer – use it for your cheese!
