Today, with lunch we were celebrating with some guests. I packed a cheeseboard to go with the lunch, which is something I love doing.
Cheeseboards are like a work of art and colour. I like to add at least three different cheeses, but the more you add the better. Today I added a Roquefort, a Pecorini with a nutty flavour, a cheese called Kwaito with herbs, a spice route cheese with cinnamon and and American cheese with a Paprika flavour. It is good to have cheeses that vary from creamy and soft to hard.
Next up, something meaty. Todays option was a Warthog Salami.
Then some fresh or dried fruits. I like to choose colourful beautiful looking fruits. My choice for this one was strawberries.
I also added some cashews to the mix.
Some other things that could be good are fresh bread or crackers, a fruit preserve, a dip or a favourite in South Africa, sweet chilli sauce.
There is just something so elegant and lovely about presenting a cheeseboard. It immediately gives a different feel to the meal.
