As the holidays are upon us, I become the hostess with the mostess during this time of year. Well I’m sorta that all year round for what ever I’m hosting, but during the holidays I enjoy it even more as I get to pull out all my festive decor and party ware. When ever I have company I love to have finger foods to serve and my absolute favorite thing to serve and eat is CHEESE! Who doesn’t love cheese? I know I do! I could eat cheese all day. Nothing makes me happier than a beautiful cheese board with all my favorite tasty cheeses. Since I had company coming over this week I headed over to Albertsons to purchase all the necessary ingredients for building the perfect holiday cheese board.
My cheeses of choice were some Creamy Brie, 12 Month Aged Sharp New York Orange Cheddar and Double Cream New York Style Cheddar, and Gouda. I’m from NYC so why wouldn’t I pick cheeses from New York. Of course I would because they are the best! Bam! I also got some petit toasts and crackers to accompany my cheese.
I then got them home and pulled out some serving boards I have. I have a huge variety as I’m all about presentation. I actually use Wood Handle Pizza Peels as a serving board. I opened up the cheeses and placed them on the serving board.
I added a sprig of rosemary since it smells divine and some grapes for presentation and they taste great with cheese and crackers.
I placed the gouda and sharp orange cheddar on one side…
And the brie and double cream cheddar on the other side.
Add your favorite drink (either alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and…
Add some festive holiday decorations to the table like snowflakes from your local craft store, or gold pine cones and trees and you have yourself the perfect holiday cheese board.
It’s sure to be a hit with your guests. I know mine devoured the cheeses!
And lets be honest I ate a ton of cheese myself, because it’s my favorite! Yum!
