A Tasting of Cave-Aged Cheeses Familiar, But Different The Classic Bold Pairings: Sweet, Savory, Spicy

Saveur Magazine teamed up with Murray’s Cheese to create these beautiful cheese plates. Find out what cheeses and accompaniments go in to creating cheeses plates like “The Classic”, “Familiar, But Different”, “A Tasting of Cave-Aged Cheeses” and “Bold Pairing: Sweet, Savory, Spicy”:

4 Decadent Cheese Plates

When building a cheese plate, creating a balanced, complementary spread is all about variety. Aim for a range of textures (runny, soft, semi-firm, hard), flavors (mild, stinky, creamy, and salty), milk types (sheep’s milk, cow’s milk, goat milk, or a blend), and colors, and look for condiments that enhance the flavors of the cheese—not overpower them. After spending an afternoon with our friends at Murray’s Cheese tasting cheeses and accompaniments, we’ve curated four unique arrays with entertaining in mind, each plate with at least three cheeses and a unique condiment. Follow our lead, or mix and match to create your own ideal plate.

Check out the full plates here.
