Oh goodness. Cheese. It’s perfect, isn’t it? I must have a cheeseboard with my boyfriend at least twice a month. It’s become a bit of a Sunday night tradition. Every time, we say to each other: we must stop eating so much cheese. But don’t. We’re such enablers.
Anyway, because I’m hungry, I wanted to do a bit of a post about my favourite things to have on a cheese board.
Port Salut is a soft, creamy cheese. It’s a bit rubbery in texture and mild. I could eat the whole block.
Brie is a must have for a cheese board. I’m sure most of you know what brie is already, so I’m not going to explain. If you don’t like brie, then go get in the sea.
Herb & Garlic Whirl.
This is a delicious cheese and I can only ever find from the cheese counter in Tesco. It’s a red Leicester with garlic and herb flavouring and I’ve loved this type of cheese for years. When I have it in, I can’t stop myself for getting some every time I go to the fridge.
Mexicana is delicious – if you’re a fan of spicy things, there’s even an extra hot version of this chilli cheese that never fails to make my mouth water.
There is no point having a cheese board without chorizo. This is the thing that I was happiest to start eating again when I stopped being a vegetarian. It is great on a cracker with cheese or eaten on it’s own.
Everyone loves humous and I tend to have it rather than buttering crackers as it’s just easier. Buttering crackers is doom as they fall apart too often, ruining your cheese board experience.
Salt & Pepper Crackers.
Most supermarkets stock their own version of salt and pepper crackers and in my opinion, they are the only type of cracker you need to a perfect cheese board.
Carrot and cucumber sticks.
Because this means it’s healthy? Right? I do enjoy the vegetables, it’s a great way to fill up on healthy, low calorie food rather than just cheese and chorizo.
Now tell me about what is on your perfect cheese board.
