Serving a gourmet cheese plate is the perfect solution to starting your dinner party or casual get-together with a bang. You get to feel sophisticated and “on top of your game” while impressing guests with delicious cheesy treats.

Look at it this way: That moment at the last party you went to and saw that tasty-looking cheese platter with your favorites just laying there for you to casually munch on. Bet you avoided small talk with Debbie Downer in turn for some cheesy goodness! (Someone out there just shouted: “OMG, how’d you know!”)

So at your next party, be sure to serve up a cheeseboard with your favorite Ile de France cheeses along with tasty garnishes and make your guests feel the same way you did. Here are a few ideas on putting together the perfect cheese place from The Glitter Guide. Enjoy!
