When it comes to entertaining, a cheese platter is a classic dinner party must-have. From four-course meals to impromptu barbecues, it’s always a hit (and a stress-free dish for the hostess). Our tip to nailing this before-dinner course? Include a mix of fresh, aged, soft, and hard cheeses with accompaniments like bread, grapes, and mildly flavored crackers. Serve your selection spread out on your choice of cheese board (we love Jean Dubost’s Map of France version) and add a knife for each cheese.
