The other day, I shared a savory cheese board that would be a super addition to any holiday gathering. Today I wanted to show you how a sweet cheese board can be the ultimate snack and dessert option for your next festive function!
Most folks will agree that cheese pairs perfectly with salty items like meats, crackers, pickles and the like. But, cheese is also absolutely amazing with items like chocolates, fruits and sweet baked goods.
Now cheese and chocolate pairings can be very subjective. Every person will have a preference on what pairings they like best. Some prefer to pair items based on their likeness while others look to chocolate and cheese pairings that complement but offer a contrast. My suggestion...try a variety of pairings and see what you like best.
When it comes time to create a cheese board, I like to offer a wide variety of options to allow my guest to dabble and find their favorite combinations. Different tastes and textures is the key to a good cheese board. A good mix of items will help ensure that your guests are happy and the cheese board is completely empty by the end of the night.
You are sure to find many options to help you serve great taste for the holidays. Castello Cheeses come in a variety of options from indulgently creamy, to curiously crumbly and even surprisingly sharp. One stop by the Publix specialty cheese case and you'll find a big selection of tasty cheeses that are perfect for a sweet OR savory cheese board.
