What Makes a Perfect Cheese Plate?

What Makes a Perfect Cheese Plate?
 
Ah the age old question… What makes a perfect cheese plate? With Thanksgiving closing in fast, the cheese gurus at Saxelby Cheesemongers are here to help out and offer a few sage words of advice to help you plan a perfect cheese plate for your turkey day festivities!
 
Q: Do I need a cheese plate for Thanksgiving?
 
A: Of course. What a silly question! While someone (and that person may be you) is toiling in the kitchen, you can keep your hungry family and guests at bay, and perhaps keep them from getting too tipsy before dinnertime. And it’s a good excuse to splurge and try new and delicious cheeses! That’s a trifecta of good reasons to cheese it up on Thanksgiving
 
Q: How much cheese should I buy?
 
A: The general rule of thumb is about 1.5 to 2 ounces per person total. It may not sound like a lot, but it is somehow a physiologically perfect sized portion for a cheese plate. Trust us on this one…
 
Q: How many cheeses should I buy?
 
A: We like odd numbers. Not really sure why, but it always seems like the ratio of textures and flavors works best in odd numbers. Three, five, or even seven (!!) cheeses are a great way to go. But don’t go with just one. That cheese would be lonely.
 
Q: What types of cheese should I buy?
 
A: A mix of cow, sheep, and goat with one firm, one semi-firm and one soft. It’s good to start with milder cheeses and work your way up to the strong stuff. That way your guests’ tastebuds can meander and weave around through different flavor experiences without being clobbered on the head by a strong cheese right away.
Q: Any other serving tips I should know about?
 
A: Be sure to take the cheeses out at least one hour before serving to make sure they’re at room temperature when you eat them. It brings the flavor out. If you’re going to serve them with accompaniments, preserves, pickles, honey, dried fruit, and nuts are all good ideas! Don’t forget your favorite loaf of crusty bread and favorite fermented beverage too!
