So then.

I'm going to a wedding shower on Sunday where I've been asked to bring along a cheese board...

If *you* were going to be there, what sorts of cheese would you want to find?

I love Munster cheese. I'm sure there will be a range of people who like the fancy smancy stuff and also those who like the 'regular' cheeses.

oh goodness..... I LOVELOVELOVE cheese....anything really except dog cheese :tongue:

check this site out www.igourmet.com

I'd want a nice cheese to spread like brie

tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar

any sort of feta makes me a happy woman indeed

harvarti, gouda, ok I need to go get a napkin to wipe the drool up

:WOW: you and me both!

I'd never thought of doing a bruschetta!! That might be lovely!

Brushetta would be nice and bit hearty.

Beccaberry

It would!

Maybe bring along a sharp cheddar and maybe a lighter swiss or other whitish cheese to round it out.

I love igourmet. :yes:

Epoisse is one of our absolute favorites! :yes: Brillat savarin is another. Oh, and cabecou, and banon. :yes: I like Muenster too! :9: And stilton and roquefort. Almost any goat or ewe's cheese... OH! P'tit basque is wonderful!

Good sturdy bread (nothing too bitey, bitterey wheat though) olives (Moroccan dried, green, other black) cornichons, and prosciutto di parma would make an incredible cheese display. :yes: Add a bit of citrus (we like lemon or lime, but a nice tangerine or blood orange is good)...

Cheese. I could easily live on it. :yes:

Beccaberry

OOOH BRILLIANT IDEAS!!!

Of course you know me, I'm always looking for a reason to add olives to something :wink:

Citrus, eh? Never thought of that...

....scribbles down notes...

If you choose lemon or lime have a tiny (clear glass :D ) bowl of kosher salt for folks to sprinkle on the citrus. It makes a wicked counterpoint to the creaminess of many of the cheeses. :yes:

You could add a hard pepperoni, or very dry salami to the board too; something along the lines of a spicy sopressata. :yes: Just make sure it's dry and not any of that nasty mushy stuff. :blech: Nothing worse than a mushy salami. :blech:

I agree, Tink. I agree.

My cheese board is quickly taking on a life of its own!! It may very well be the hit of the party!

I love doing cheese "boards." I have an old antique cutting board that came out of a huge Sellars/Hoosier style kitchen cupboard. It makes for one heck of a cheese service. :yes:

Cheese, good strong meat, citrus, olives, cornichon, and bread...there is nothing much more needed in life... (well, maybe a sip or two, eh)? :D

Beccaberry
04-03-2009, 02:23 AM
Indeed...or two :)

Johnie

I cheese I like (in addition to the plethora already mentioned) is Port du Salut...I discovered it in French class when I was in High School. It's really good with a nice crusty bread. :yes:

Oh, and I like strawberries with my Brie. ;)

pleasepleasepleaseplease don't take offence but I have to say the one thing I have missed on any of my trips to America is really decent cheese, none of it tastes quite how it should for some reason.

*hides*

No offense taken hun...you can always say what you feel!! Is it possible though that maybe you're not visiting the right places for the best cheeses?

Well we were in Wisconsin and the cheeses on offer were supposed to be very good but, maybe I'm just being picky.

Got to love a good Roquefort or Port Salut , Well matured Stilton hmmm

I really don't like Wisconsin cheese. :( I don't know what they do to those poor cows there. Not a fan of Vermont cheese either, nor Maytag Bleu. :sigh:

The only NY cheese I like is cheese curd... weird but fun. (Herkimer Cheese anyone)? :eek:

We spend a small fortune on imported cheeses for just that very reason...no really nice ones here. Yet. :D :D

I've never had it, but my best friend was born in Scotland and still goes back to visit every few years...her mom goes probably once a year...and she RAVES about Dairylea cheese! She smuggles back as much as she can every trip. :yes:

Oh we love cheese but it has to be mature cheese. Davidstow is a lovely cheese. I also love Feta, it has to be one of the best cheeses around. What about some lovely chutney nto go with the cheese board.
