A cool tall glass of clamato juice helps highlight the flavours of a nice monterey jack cheese.
When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
Serve ripened cheeses at room temperature because cold can mask their flavours. To temper cheese, remove it from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes before serving, depending on the hardness of the cheese. Leave the cheese in a fresh, well-ventilated area and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
For a refreshing beverage to go with chunks of medium cheddar cheese, try making your own sparkling drink with your favourite juice and club soda.
A beautifully built cheese board is an excellent addition to any entertaining occasion. The versatility allows it to be part of breakfast, lunch, or dinner, as an appetizer, main course, or dessert. It’s easy, elegant, and virtually effortless.
