As Xmas approaches entertaining season is in full swing. What better way to impress the crowds that to offer grazing platters. Easy for functions and a great menu offering for a time of year where people like to treat themselves.

Top Tips
– Ripeness of soft cheese varieties, like brie and camembert is key to their enjoyment. They are at their best when served close to the Best Before date and at room temperature.
– Choose at least one soft cheese (brie/camembert), one hard cheese (cheddar/parmesan) and one blue cheese
– Allow 30g of each cheese per person (no more than 120g)
– Arrange on a large platter or board with one knife per cheese
