How To: Host a Cheese and Wine

Last week, P and I hosted a fun and filling cheese and wine party and I decided to write a post sharing everything that I think made the party a success.

I always like to serve a signature drink. For people who don’t drink wine or beer, it’s nice to have another option. Our classic g’n’ts went over incredibly!

If you are free during the day of the party, or even the night before, set out all of the glassware and dishware in order to limit the amount of work in the minutes before the party to putting out cheese and decanting the red wine.

It’s always fun to try out new cheeses: this truffle goat cheese was not only local, but insanely delicious!

A great touch to any cheese platter: freshly roasted garlic.

How to:

Cut the top of a head of garlic

Roast in aluminum foil with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt (preferably maldon) at 375 for about 30 minutes or until soft

Place on cheese plate as is

Tip: use a variety of different types of crackers, put out some berries, and even some olives. 

Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy! It’s nice to host a wine and cheese because the work is minimal and everything can be done in advance!
