Here’s the good thing about @yellowhousecheese
, Kristyn likes to get really creative with her cheese-making, so they have an excellent variety of handcrafted cheeses. This gives us many options for making the perfect cheese plate. Pictured here is a simple cheese plate, perfect for having a few friends over. If you have a larger crowd, you’ll probably want to do something a little fancier. In general, here are some of the elements of the perfect cheese plate:
1. Choose a variety of cheeses - general rule of thumb is to have one hard, one blue, and one soft. @yellowhousecheese
makes hard cheeses, but you never know what could transpire in that creamery! @lecreamery
makes some delicious soft goat cheeses, including their petite pearls shown in the photo.
2. Bread & crackers - get a good crusty bread and a few types of neutral flavored crackers. Flavored crackers ale away from the flavor of the cheese! @lecracker
hand makes excellent crackers from local fermented spelt flour.
3. Find the perfect accoutrements - •local honey
•fresh local fruit (right now raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries and peaches are in season, but berries will be done soon)
•high quality preserves (pictured here are Fig preserves, but @bartonfarmsandgardens
makes some really unique jams with local ingredients!)
•charcuterie (try @iheartswine
for some delicious cured meats, sausages and more made from locally sourced meats)
•cucumbers make a refreshing and healthy replacement for a cracker
•an assortment of olives
•pickled vegetables (cornichons, pickled radish or red onion is really easy to make yourself)
•nuts (marcona almonds, pistachios, whatever you like!) And done! Your friends and family will love you!
