Host Your Own Cheese Night

The Night of Cheese wrap-up is complete! In case you missed a course, here is the rundown:

Maybe you are completely tired of cheese at this point (shame on you!), or maybe this series has inspired you to throw your own cheese tasting. If you are looking for any easy place to start, you can refer to the ideas and tips in the posts above, or you can check out this post I wrote for From Scratch Club about De-Mystifying the Cheese Plate. Learn about how many cheeses you should put on a cheese plate (three or five), what type of milk to choose, mixing textures, appropriate serving sizes, how to arrange the plate, adding accouterments, and much more! If you have any more questions about cheese (how to use it, how to buy it, what to do with it), email me or leave me a comment!

Fantastic idea!! I love it.

So I couldn't help but notice that your cheese plate has a blue cheese at about seven o'clock.

Our man Eric has instructed me that a well constructed cheese plate has the first (and most mildest cheese) at the six o'clock position. From there, the cheeses get placed clockwise in order from lightest to strongest.

I thought that was crazy talk, when he told me. But I trust his expertise, and I'm a good student.

Daniel - I'm sure Eric is right. I was more concerned with getting a decent picture than the proper placement of cheese in this instance.
