Cheese Platter assembly 101

This Summer I made the most delectable discovery ever.  The Cheese Lady. Oh my heavens to Betsy, how on earth I hadn’t found her until now is beyond me!  But with a little help from my friends I did.  I luv me some cheese.  You really truly have no idea how much I love cheese.

All of it! No cheese is too stinky, too blue, too firm, or too soft.

As a matter a fact I think I should add this to the list of T-shirts I need to create.  “I LUV me some Cheese”.

The Cheese Lady can be found at the Farmers Market in Muskegon or at her shop also in Muskegon.  She carries cheeses from all over the world.  The best part is you can try before you buy!  Kathleen and her staff are so knowledgeable about all things cheese.  They will tell you what time of year the cheese was made, what the cow, sheep, or goat ate.  Why it tastes like the sea.  Seriously, if you are in the West Michigan area hop in your car and take yourself on a little Cheese Field Trip to The Cheese Lady’s shop!

Kenny and I spent a weekend at Lake Michigan with a group of friends, all cheese lovers….I might add, so I thought it was a must that we have a cheese platter for the weekend.  I headed on out to visit Kathleen, and she shared with me all the tricks of putting together the perfect cheese platter.  So I thought I would share them with you!

After you read Cheese Platter 101, see if you can tell me what I did wrong on this platter.

Ok what did I do wrong? My error didn’t keep people from eating the cheese, but if I would have payed closer attention to Kathleens advise it would have made the cheese eating more pleasant for my guests.

I hope this is helpful in your pursuit of the perfect cheese platter.  Pour yourself a glass of Vino and enjoy!
