Cheese boards have established themselves as a must-have at every dinner party, and that’s exactly why it’s so important to master the art of putting them together. If you’re still new to the whole thing, here’s a couple of common mistakes you should avoid.
This one sounds pretty obvious, but you’ll still see plates with unsliced cheeses. They make the whole thing more complicated, because it will take time for your guests to cut cheese on their own, and they’ll probably ruin the aesthetic of your board along the way.
Putting together a perfect cheese board is all about finding the right balance. Your plate will look basic if it lacks variety, but that doesn’t mean you should go overboard in an attempt to make it more colorful and impress your guests.
You should also avoid serving your cheese straight out of the refrigerator since you don’t want it to be too cold. Try to take it out at least 30 minutes before serving, because it will be easier to arrange and taste much better.
