A Cozy & Comforting Cheeseboard

Last modified on February 2nd, 2018 at 8:09 pm

While PJ’s are a must, and reading and playing board games is a do, we’re unwinding this holiday season with an easy yet decadent, cozy & comforting cheeseboard made together with Castello.

Decorating the tree, baking cookies, shopping lists, wrapping gifts, Christmas movies, family gatherings, and everything but a partridge in a pear tree — this is holiday, and while it’s easy to get overwhelmed by gift lists and grocery lists, Philip and I always set quiet time aside for us during the season’s hustle and bustle.

For us, unwinding includes transforming our living room floor into a cozy & comforting haven filled with pillows, blankets and candles, where PJ’s and warm socks are a must, and reading and playing board games are a do. This year’s menu consists of mulled wine and a cozy & comforting cheeseboard made together with Castello.

When curating a board the most important thing is the variety of cheeses, textures and flavours that anchor your platter. For our cozy & comforting cheeseboard we opted for the classic trifecta: Castello’s soft Double Crème White, medium Extra Creamy Danish Blue mould cheese, and hard Tickler Extra Mature cheddar cheese.

Double Crème White: a melt in your mouth cheese with seductive notes beneath a thick and velvety case. We love a bit of extra drama on a cheeseboard, so we sprinkled a touch of holiday to this cheese with a cranberry + pomegranate sauce adding a warm and rich texture to this already silky cheese. Together the velvet notes of the cheese with the warm holiday sauce evokes a true Christmas moment in every bite.

Extra Creamy Danish Blue: an aromatic cheese flavoured with extra fresh cream to add to it’s richness and texture. This blue mould pairs perfectly with nuts, and fruit and has a sweet and salty finish which is one of our favourite profiles of a blue.

Tickler Extra Mature Cheddar: a sweet and tangy cheese aged for up to 18 months, pairing perfectly with red wine (or mulled wine) and bread. For us, cheddar is a always obvious inclusion on our cheeseboards and adds an element of elevated nostalgia as it relates back to classic childhood favourites. This cheddar in particular was a perfect pairing for rosemary crackers and olives.

Happy Holidays and bon appetite.
