How to make a cheese platter

Whether we are hosting a brunch, a party or being alone at home, a cheese platter is always a delicious snack.

There are many options when it comes to choosing cheeses and there is no right or wrong way to do it. But we can take into account a few aspects, especially when the cheeses are enjoyed with the guests.

It is recommended to choose a number of 3-5 cheeses with different textures (soft, semi-solid or hard), produced from different types of milk (cow, goat or sheep). The cheese must be cut into different shapes for easier identification, but also for visual appearance: slices, triangles, cubes, rolls. The soft ones can also be left whole.

The cheese should be served at room temperature, which means we take it out of the fridge thirty minutes to an hour.

Variety, color, texture

There are no limits when choosing what completes the cheese platter. Walnuts, fruits, fresh vegetables, breadsticks, crackers or bread, dried sausages or prosciutto, olives, honey or jam can complement or enhance the flavor of the cheese. A little creativity in arranging the cheeses is welcome.

What cheeses we choose to put on the set for events

A cheese with a familiar flavor, in case you do not know the guests, or if there are children, is the only recommendation. Otherwise, be curious to try new cheeses.

Some of our recommendations for a five-cheese platter

  • soft cheese, Brie, Camembert or Mozzarella (scalded pasta)
  • goat cheese, Chevre, Crottin, Selles-sur-Cher, Valençay
  • semi-cheese, Cheddar, Gouda, Tilsit type
  • hard cheese, type Parmesan, Pecorino, Comté, Manchego,
  • blue mold cheese, Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton type
  • 3-5 types of cheese, soft, semi-hard, hard with different maturation periods
  • 1-2 types of sausages, salami, prosciutto
  • 2-3 types of biscuits (or bread)
  • seasonal fruits or dried fruits
  • NUTS
  • pickled or pickled vegetables or fruits, pickles or olives

If you are thinking of making a cheese bar, the number of selected cheeses may be higher.

What wines do we associate with these platters with cheeses

It can start with a raw sparkling wine or a dry calm white and can continue with a dry red wine, preferably young and fruity. If hard, matured cheeses, a full-bodied dry red wine predominate, it may be a good choice. White or red dessert wine, if we have blue mold cheese that is topped with honey or jam, is welcome at the end (see the association of cheeses with wines and other drinks here).

7 famous European cheeses that you must try

Manchego (Spain)

It is matured between 60 days and 2 years, and the longer the maturation, the more pungent its taste becomes. It bears the name of the sheep from whose milk it is made, and its color may differ, from whitish to yellow.

Feta (Greece)

It is made from a mixture of sheep's milk and goat's milk and lasts about three months. We also know about it that it is kept in brine, because the process by which it is made involves pressing the cream cheese in salted water.

Roquefort (France)

It is a blue mold cheese made from sheep's milk. It is crumbly, pungent in taste, with slight notes of nuts and jam, depending on how long it is ripe (usually at least 5 months).

Emmentaler (Switzerland)

It is one of the famous Swiss cheeses with holes in them. These holes are formed from the carbon dioxide released by the bacteria in the milk during the maturation process. It is a semi-hard cheese, a little sweet and which melts very well. For this reason, we recommend it in a cheese sandwich or in a fondue.

Cheddar (United Kingdom)

It takes its name from the process by which it is manufactured (cheddarring). The milk is cooked, then divided into several pieces. These pieces are pressed together to form a block of cheese. It is this process that gives the cheddar the distinct notes of walnuts. Like Emmentaler, this type of cheese melts very well.

Halloumi (Cyprus)

It is an unripe cheese, kept in brine, which is why it has a salty taste. It is normally made from goat's milk and sheep's milk, although some newer recipes also indicate the use of cow's milk. Halloumi can be eaten as such, fried or grilled.

Mozzarella (Italy)

It is perhaps the most famous cheese in Italy. It is made from buffalo milk (or at least it should be). & ldquoThe mozzarella case & rdquo is heated in hot water, squeezed and massaged until it acquires a fine texture, after which the balls are formed. It goes great in salads or melted on pizza.

Cheese platter, specifically Romanian

If you make it with Romanian specifics, then the fruits are replaced with vegetables. Green onions and tomatoes are indispensable. So is lettuce. And fine sausages can be replaced with pastrami. The tastes are strong and the bread cannot be missing.

What kind of cheese to put?
There are only a few types of cheese in which we are famous. And, unfortunately, they are not easy to buy from supermarkets, at an acceptable quality. But you can go to one of the few specialized grocery stores. Or take a trip to the villages. And here you will definitely find them.

Bellows cheese
Bellows cheese, quicker to taste and crumbly, is made from leavened curd. It is easily found in the mountains, in the sheepfolds.

Cheese of goat, buffalo
You can also buy cow's milk, cheese most often sold in Romania, but being a festive moment, choose goat or buffalo. It is a salty cheese that goes very well with tomatoes.

cheese
It is a cheese obtained by boiling whey. It is soft and contains less fat than other types of cheese.

curd of sheep
The milk is coagulated, then the whey is squeezed to obtain curd. This cheese is the easiest to make, you could make it at home. It is often unsalted, so serve with a pinch of salt next to it.

Swiss
It is made from curd that is swept for a longer period of time. In stores you can find especially the foreign version Emmental, but it does not hurt to be interested in the Romanian version, very good in taste.


HOW TO MAKE A CHEESE PLATE

I had planned this article and vlog before the pandemic, but just when I started it, the state of emergency came over us and we stayed quietly in the house. Now, however, he was free to haunt and I ran to Obor for some Romanian cheeses to play on the sets.

In recent years, since you can find a wide variety of cheeses in our country, the fashion of cheese platters has started to grow. Cheesemakers, delicatessens and special districts in hypermarkets all sell various types of cheese, softer, harder, more mature or fresher, from all over Europe. But let's not forget the rich range of cheeses from us, from telemea to cheese, from curd to bellows cheese. And even cheeses with noble mold, like Nasal.

I, for this video, chose exactly a selection of Romanian cheeses and it was very difficult for me to decide on just a few. But, as you will see in the vlog, the geographical criterion is only one of those based on which a cheese platter can be made. The degree of maturation, for example, is different, and texture can also be a way of grouping products. Whichever option you choose, however, it is important not to overload the plate, neither with too many varieties, nor with too large quantities, so that each piece is the star in its corner.

In addition to what I have learned over time about how to make a cheese platter, I also asked the opinion of a specialist, Alexandru Pițigoi, a cheese expert and owner of the Mesange cheese factory in Bucharest.

And don't forget that regardless of the season or the occasion of preparing a cheese platter, it goes best with some wines, be it red in the cold season, or pink or even white in the warm season, but also sparkling wines, regardless of the season. .


DIY, 1930s style: arranging an Art Deco set
