Cheese and Fruit platters have always been popular in my family and we always tend to have a large one through the holidays and now that I have my own family I like to create a smaller version. I love both fruit and cheese and can happily just have this for my dinner (which I do quite often). When you create one for a smaller family you will want to get just about two different cheeses I usually go for something French or Dutch. If you’re making it for a larger gathering you will want to try several and try to include sheep, cow and goat.
A crusty bread like Baguette (my favorite), a few various crackers and some nuts and fruits. I like almonds or walnuts and fruits such as dates and grapes. Also a good honey drizzled on brie is really good (trust me). Always makes sure your cheese is room temperature before serving it as well. I am also a sucker for good olive oil and LOVE drizzling it all over my baguette.
