• How to Make a Cheese Platter with Matt & Kate Jennings


The Ultimate Cheese Platter

Our friends and favorite cheese experts Matt and Kate Jennings are in the studio today to demystify the cheese board. Building a proper cheese plate is like composing a harmonious piece of music, you need to hit the high notes, the low notes and everything in between. Start with a mix of five diverse cheeses. Here, the Jennings are using:


The Ultimate Cheese Platter

  • Canvas-wrapped cheddar cheese, such as Isles of Mull cheese from Scotland
  • Sheep’s milk cheese, such as Ossau-Iraty from France
  • Soft-ripened goat’s milk cheese with a bloomy rind, such as Leonora from northern Spain
  • Mild blue cheese, such as Fourme D’Ambert from France
  • Washed-rind cheese, such as Willoughby from Vermont

Arrange on a board and garnish with grapes, marcona almonds, pears, peppadew peppers, berries and a drizzle of honey.
