Serving

  • For best flavor, serve cheese at room temperature.
     
  • Remove cheese from the refrigerator 30 to 60 minutes prior to serving. Large cheeses require a longer time to reach room temperature than soft-ripened cheeses.
     
  • Only remove the amount of cheese you will be using from the refrigerator.
     
  • Keep the cheese wrapped so it doesn't dry out. Unwrap it just before serving.
     
  • If you are serving individual portions, it is easier to cut the soft cheeses while they are still cold. Bring them to room temperature after they are cut.
     
  • If you are presenting cheeses on one cheese platter, do not cut them into individual servings advance. It is best to let guests slice their own portions.
     
  • Be sure that cheeses on a platter have sufficient room between one another to allow for easy cutting or slicing.
     
  • Try to have individual knives or serving tools for each cheese served.
     
  • Avoid placing strong, pungent cheeses right beside delicately flavored cheeses.
     
  • Wrap and refrigerate any leftover cheese as soon as possible.
