How to Prepare The Ultimate Cheese Platter

In Australia, cheese can be featured in a number of ways. At a restaurant, it can be served as an aperitif or on a full cheese trolley. At home, it’s usually served with a pre-dinner drink and even as a substitute for dessert.

Today I show you how to prepare a party cheese platter that will be perfect for entertaining at home. Here, I’m using four different kinds of my favorite cheeses of Austalian variety: Ashgrove Mr Bennett Blue, Ashgrove Vintage Cheddar, Tasmanian Heritage Camembert, and Tasmanian Heritage Brie.

When making cheese platters, it’s always a good idea to use a variety of cheese textures. Something soft and creamy like Brie or Camembert, something firmer like Cheddar, something a bit harder like Parmigiano-Reggiano, and of course, it’s always a good idea to have a blue variety on there.

A great tip: Always wait 30 minutes before serving to unwrap the cheeses and prepare them on the cheese board. And if you’re having a hard time cutting into the different cheeses, (and I mean you, Blue), then dip your knife in hot water before slicing.
