Building A Better Cheeseboard

Tips from Our Cheese Experts:

Our experts recommend buying 1 oz. of each cheese per person – they suggest at least 3 cheeses of various flavors and textures. Build your cheeseboard in advance, refrigerate and then let it sit out for one hour as cheese is best served at room temperature. Make sure to talk to our Cheese Experts – they will be happy to help you build your own cheeseboard!
