This has to be one of my favorite shoots from the archives…an abundant cheese platter with all of the cheeses, fruits, vegetables, meats, spreads, breads and nuts one could EVER want, am I right? As a major grazer, I could opt for a cheese platter over some of the most appetizing entrees almost every chance I get, so this cheese platter inspiration has a special place in my heart.

As shared in the original post, MKR spells out what makes up the ultimate cheese platter, but she explains that there really are no rules. Creating a cheese platter is a great opportunity to try new flavors, mix old favorites and expand your knowledge in the tapas department. While there are no rules, it can also be a bit intimidating standing in front of the deli window, so MKR shares her tips for selecting a good variety of cheese and charcuterie (like include a variety of cheese textures: soft, firm, hard and blue…but always one “safe option”!), as well as a few favorite picks of her own (roasted tomatoes and grilled asparagus are always a hit).  

Will you be serving a cheese platter at your Super Bowl party? What are your go-to’s on your board?  Cheers, Kat

  • OMG!! Must have that Le Cruset cheese platter. I love the little trough around the edge to stuff with all the cheese accoutrements. Keeps it in a nice, tidy package. I agree, when you are standing in front of the cheese section it can be super overwhelming to pick. I agree it’s good to have at least one or two go-to varieties that everyone is familiar with and a couple that you have never tried. Guest who are adventurous always appreciate being introduced to new things. Cheers!
