Whatever the occasion or gathering, a cheeseboard is the ideal starter. However, most people don’t know where to begin. Try thinking of the cheeseboard as a wheel of taste—start with something creamy and end with a flavourful punch.
Try using these five must have cheeses. They’re guaranteed to bring your cheeseboard to the next level.
With two flavours to choose from, this authentic soft cheese provides an irresistible creamy texture that spreads easily onto celery, crackers, or a nice crisp bagel chip.
A soft cow’s-milk cheese, Brie should be served at room temperature. Its rich flavour pairs perfectly with champagne, walnuts, and grapes.
Once only found in England, Cheddar is now the most widely purchased and eaten cheese. It’s a crumbly, hard cheese that works well with apples or almost anything.
An aromatic cheese like Taleggio is a great addition to your cheeseboard. While the aroma is strong, the flavour is mild with a fruity tang.
Sharp and salty, Blue Cheese is powerful in flavor and aroma. Try choosing one with either white wine vinegar or cider vinegar—and don’t forget the chutney.
