Real California Cheese Board



– A cheese board or course is a delightful, satisfying addition to any meal. A typical cheese course contains just a few ounces of cheese per person, accompanied by another food – often seasonal fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts or even chocolate – along with thin slices of handmade bread or artisan crackers.

Here are some ideas for assembling a traditional cheese course using Real California cow’s milk cheeses:

- Select three to five cheeses of varying flavors and textures. Many prefer three because it doesn’t challenge the palate with too many flavors yet provides good variety and contrast.

- When selecting cheeses, create a range of flavors and textures from soft to hard and milk to sharp, event pungent varieties.

A bloomy rind cheese such as Brie, Camembert or Formagella.

A soft or washed-rind cheese such as Teleme or Crescenza.

A semi-firm hard cheese such as Raw Milk Cheddar, Gouda, St. George or Mezzo Secco.

A very hard aged cheese such as Dry Jack, Aged Gouda or Estero Gold.

A highly flavorful or pungent cheese such as Blue or Schloss.
