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.
Part-skim mozzarella has such a light flavour it can be paired with a wide range of foods. Meats like beef, pork or poultry are just as fitting as pasta, basil, olives, or sardines.
A cool tall glass of clamato juice helps highlight the flavours of a nice monterey jack cheese.
