Say Cheese…

This little sliver of savory wisdom arrived in my inbox this morning rather fortuitously…

It’s the GOOP (Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog) guide to creating the perfect cheese board. With advice from my two favorite cheese sources (London’s La Fromagerie and Murray’s Cheese shop here in NYC) this is more than worth sharing.

And so you should!

A cheese board is a luxurious way to round out any special supper. Cheese can replace dessert giving guests a savory send off after a meal. A popular party choice for those of us a little intimidated by the stove, a wine and cheese cocktail party is the perfect casual Friday night get together… no knife skills required!

Well maybe some minor hacking could be involved…

As you can see we are currently hard at work trying to choose the best cheeses for an upcoming wine and cheese party… stay tuned for what we come up!
