- cheese slice so that each slice and present crust and the interior of the cheese.
- Each type of cheese is cut into a special knife.From the hardest, aged cheeses (such as "cheese") chip pieces knife with wedge short blade, hard pressed cheese cut a long knife with two handles, blue cheese cut with a knife - the guillotine, which, instead of a blade used steel strings, especially softcheese cut with a knife with a wide blade, in which there are several "windows".

How to make a cheese plate
- to create a cheese plate will require several types of cheese of various types.The number of varieties may be different - some experts say that there should be no less than five, others say the least - the four varieties.The main rule is the selection of cheese for the cheese plate is not the number of varieties, and their harmonious combination - on the plate should be laid out different types of cheese, for example, slightly viscous and deflating the taste of "Mozzarella";It has a gentle spicy taste softest "Bree" in white moldy crust;acute "Dorblu" with a sharp characteristic odor and greasy sweet "Maasdam".
- Classic cheese plate - a large round table, made of hard wood.Cheese spread her whole pieces.For each variety of cheese supplied separate special knife designed to cut it.According to the rules rely on their own each guest cut off his slices of cheese, but since in practice to do so is not always convenient, often violate this canon and the cheese spread on a board already sliced.The exception is cheese with a white mold "Bree" or "Camembert" - they are too soft, so they cut immediately before use.
- cheese is placed on the board in a certain order: first on the edge put the youngest and light cheese such as "mozzarella", then moving clockwise, place the cheese varieties as enhance their taste and increase the exposure period - for "mozzarella"spread "Bree", then "Maasdam", followed by the already sharp and edgy "Dorblu".Try the cheese in the same manner.
- Instead of wooden boards for a cheese plate, you can use a very large platter or a special marble stand.A plate decorated with nuts, grapes, pears, mint leaves and coffee beans.
