Xmas Cheese Platter Ideas

Here are our top tips on how to make a great, yet simple Christmas cheese platter:

Go with the odds

  • Serve an odd number of cheese and meats—this will make any party platter aesthetically appealing. Three or five types of cheese or meat work best.

Three must-have cheeses

  • Soft cheese—brie or camembert
  • Cheddar
  • Goat’s or sheep’s cheese—to cater for guest who have an intolerance for cow’s milk

Extend the platter

  • Bulk the platter up with savoury sides such as crostinis (little toasts), bread sticks, crackers and plain baguette slices
  • Add fresh/dried fruit: figs, grapes, strawberries, watermelon and muscatels
  • Add condiments: fruit relishes, chutneys and fruit paste

And the most important tip of all: Have fun with the party platter!
