Red or white wine ?

Usually, red wine comes along with the cheeseboard but it doesn’t always make the perfect match. White wines are better with most of the cheeses, such as goat and blue cheeses.

The art of cheese cutting

The art of cheese cutting

A well cut cheese is tastier and can be kept much longer.
To enjoy well a cheese, it is necessary to be able to discover all its nuances. Every guest must thus be able to have a piece going from the crust to the heart of the cheese.
Plans bellow will guide you towards the art of the cut.

The cheese knife

Cut in a firm and clear way and so avoid crushing the cheese. Clean the knife with some bread between every cutting if your board offers a big diversity of flavors.
You can also reserve a knife for strong tasting cheeses.

Two cheeseboards

Space out cheeses on your board. The cutting will there be easier.
If you offer a big variety of cheeses, do not hesitate to use two boards : This solution offers the advantage of having softer tasting cheeses on a platter and strong tatsing cheeses on the other.
