November Begins The Holiday Season

Friday, November 6th, 2015

November is finally here and that means the holidays are just around the corner. Thanksgiving is just 20 days away! It’s best to start planning now that way you aren’t overly stressed when the day finally gets here. The easiest appetizer to serve at Thanksgiving is a cheeseboard!

The first step in planning your cheeseboard is picking the cheese. We recommend choosing both hard and soft cheeses or cheeses that range from mild in flavor to pungent . Our Brie, Goat, Fol Epi and St. Agur are a fabulous combination. The brie is soft and mild. The goat is a little harder but tangy in flavor. Fol Epi has a nutty flavor and is similar to swiss cheese. Lastly, St. Agur is a creamy, rich blue cheese. There will surely be a cheese for everyone!

Next pick a variety of sides to pair with your cheese. Fruit and nuts are most popular. We recommend apples, grapes and a raspberry preserve. For nuts try walnuts and almonds.

Last, choose your bread and crackers. We recommend toasting some baguette while also providing a couple selections of crackers. The cheese plate should take minutes to prepare but will hopefully stick with your guests for a long time!

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!
