Imagine, if you will, a truly terrible company holiday party. Your shoes are hurting your feet; that creepy person from accounting keeps staring at you; there’s an endless string of terrible Christmas music playing in the background, and you’re already certain that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will be stuck in your head until at least April; not to mention that you spilled RED WINE on your boss fifteen minutes into the night.
So to avoid the disaster of your evening, you refill your wineglass (this time with white; it’s much less dangerous) and go hide in the corner by the refreshment table. It is there that you discover the most devastating thing of the entire ordeal: the cheese board is a scattering of stale, crusty cubes of weak cheddar along with some warm grapes and bland saltines. The horror.
Here at The Foodie Press, we can assure you of a few things about the holiday party we would throw (and if we were throwing one, you’d definitely be invited): 1. we would definitely not have any sort of dress code that would require painful shoes, 2. forget the season and the traditions, we have a strict no-Christmas-music policy, and most importantly, 3. we’d have an awesome cheese board.
Our Amazing Cheese Board:
Our board would also have a dash of charcuterie, some flavorful crackers (no stale saltines for us), a handful of fresh grapes, plus honey and some quince paste to pair with our saltier cheeses.
The diversity in flavors and textures would make you want to hide in the corner all night with our cheese board, and our boss would probably be right there with you, both of you sipping on red wine (or maybe white because you really can’t be too safe).
So what would you put on your cheese board?
