How to Make a Beautiful Cheese Plate for Two

Y’all! It’s National Cheese Lover’s Day. As it’s a holiday that is literally celebrating ME, I had to offer some advice for making a beautiful and delicious cheese tray for two — since Brian and I are heading off to Florida in less than 24 hours, we can’t have a ton of extra cheese lying around. Or a party. And I know I’ve talked about cheese plates before, but this one has a video!

So I made my way over to Whole Foods — they had a SALE, you guys — to pick up some of their cute little cuts of cheese (small pieces and ends are perfect for making a small(ish) cheese platter.

I also bought fondue and a goat gouda for later because that shit was on sale.

I picked up a cave aged gruyere from Emmi Roth, a rattlesnake cheddar (smoky with habanero and other peppers and tequila), a creamy goat cheese called Capricho de Cabra Mitica, and a mild jarlsberg (mostly because it was like $2). I also had a sharp cheddar and an AMAZING Maytag Blue Cheese in the fridge that I added for color and a nice rounded out cheese plate.

Anyways, I made you a fancy pants video so take a look!

So, YouTube is doing this thing where small content creators aren’t going to be able to make money off their piddly little videos anymore unless they have over 1,000 followers of their channel. Would you do me a solid and subscribe?

Happy National Cheese Lover’s Day!

Seriously.

Today is a great day…for CHEESE!

So go out. Buy a hunk. Eat the whole thing. You deserve it. Might I recommend some of my elite fancy favorites? (I don’t have a Google Doc or anything…) You can likely find these guys at a Whole Foods or fancy cheese market near you. If you don’t have one of those, your local grocer should have Cabot, Kerry Gold Dubliner, or some fine cheese spread from Wisconsin  I do love my Wisconsin Cheese.

Cypress Grove Cheese

This goat cheese specialist makes some of the finest goat cheese around. From Midnight Moon (mild and delightful, perfect for less than adventures cheesies) to Humboldt Fog (OH MY GOD if you like brie and blue, you’ve got to try this shit. Not for the casual cheese eater. This one is for the connoisseur.)

They’ve got a variety of other flavored goat cheeses for the taking, including truffle tremor (Hello truffle flavor!) But you know…don’t let this tiny little post show you how much I love Cypress Grove. Let me love letter speak for itself.
