A Decadent Cheeseboard Inspiration

August 11 2020
« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

Here's a little source of entertaining inspiration for your next friends or family gathering. This beautiful, decadent cheese board is filled with some of my favourites: creamy truffle brie on sweet anise tortas, a buttery, tangy blue cheese with roasted walnuts, and a smooth, earthy mature goat cheese with spiced pear paste. Delicious!

The key to creating a beautiful and delicious cheeseboard is to choose a diverse range of cheeses. Whether you feature three, five, or seven cheeses (best practice is to stick to odd numbers), prioritise a mix of tastes and textures. Include options such as soft, creamy brie or camembert, a beautiful creamy tangy blue cheese, a fresh or mature goat cheese, cheddar, semi-hard varieties, and so on. For an even greater visual impact, choose cheeses with different shapes, colours, and sizes, and pair them with interesting and in-season local produce.

Below, you'll find a list of the cheeses and accompaniments I used in this setup. I've showcased some of Australia's diverse and divine cheeses that I am fortunate to have access to. Truly spoiled for choice!

Now that I've shared my favourites, what's your 'must-have cheese' on a delicious and decadent cheeseboard?

Ingredients

Cheeses

  • 'That’s Amore' Burrata - soft & milky. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil & top with fresh herbs & freshly cracked black pepper.
  • 'Section 28' Mont Priscilla - a semi-hard cheese, buttery, sweet & smooth, with a beautiful line of ash running through its centre.
  • 'Milawa' Goats Milk Camembert - a delicious earthy camembert. Perfect with fresh honey or honeycomb.
  • 'Bay of Fires' Cloth Cheddar - a beautiful clothbound cheddar.
  • 'Holy Goat' La Luna Goats Cheese - tangy & peppery with a beautiful moonscape rind (one of my favourite cheeses).
  • 'Tamar Valley' Truffle Brie - a decedent smooth creamy brie with a truffle filled centre. Need I say more!?
  • 'Berry Creek' Riverine Blue - a creamy & fruity buffalo milk blue.


A special mention to one of my favourites that didn't make it - 'Meredith Dairy' Marinated Goats Cheese. I always have this in our fridge, perfect for salads, avo toast, pasta, etc, but also perfect on a cheeseboard.


Accompaniments

  • 'Ines Rosales' Tortas with Anise - slightly sweet large round tortas
  • Lavosh & Wafer Crackers
  • Muscatels
  • Medjool Dates
  • Spiced Pear Paste (quick tip - jams also work wonderfully instead of cheese pastes - fig, dark berry, etc)
  • Fresh Honeycomb
  • Roasted Walnuts
  • Caper Berries
  • Green Sicilian Olives
  • Dried Kalamata Olives
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper

Method

  1. Arrange the cheese and accompaniments onto a large serving board or platter.
