Introducing the Autumn Cheese Board

Cheese-Board-with-TextCheese…what? I know. I know. As a fellow human raised on boxed macaroni and cheese it’s hard for me to relate to something so refined. However, after sampling a really good cheese board, you’ll quickly see that anyone can come to adore these scrumptious creations.Cheese-Board-Close-UpA cheese board was a foreign term to me until a few months ago. I chewed, smiled, and nodded along as I was instructed by a professional cheesemonger. I learned that cheese is an art and great cheese is worth spending a little extra. I agree wholeheartedly with this. I want my kids to appreciate real food. For example, Sharp Irish Cheddar with three ingredients is better than Velveeta Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product. A cheese board that features the good stuff with seasonal apples and crunchy 34 Degrees Crisps will certainly seal the deal.Autumn-Cheese-BoardIt turns out that a cheese board is a central gathering piece for shared meals. The hostess fills it with crunchy, savory, chewy, and sweet. People chat and try different flavor combinations. I tried making one for my kids. It was a hit. If you have an upcoming office party – try this instead of a giant cheese ball.
