For this post I teamed up with my friend Brooke Magliozzi at Wayfair. We are both super passionate about putting together the perfect cheese platter, so we decided to collab in order to show Haute Mess readers how we wow our friends and family with a spring-themed cheese board!
Whether you’re entertaining a crowd or having a leisurely happy hour at home with your s/o, spring weather provides us with plenty of reasons to enjoy a relaxing evening in our own backyards. Of course in our minds, no evening is complete without a Pinterest-worthy cheese board.
Enjoy this snippet from the spring section of Magliozzi’s guide, and read the full post here!
Spring signals the end of winter! There’s nothing better than relaxing outside for your first glimpse at the sun in months. Cheese boards are the perfect accompaniment to a laid-back spring weekend on your patio with a glass of wine. To help you decide which cheeses work best for the changing weather, we’ve made the perfect cheese, meat and cracker platter for your every need this spring!
Bucheron is a goat’s milk cheese from the Loire Valley that is made in short logs and sold in slices. The longer it’s aged, the sharper it tastes, therefore this cheese would make a perfect aged addition to a cheese board.
Cowgirl Creamery St. Pat is a cow’s milk cheese with a special green rind. The rind is wrapped in nettle leaves, which add a smoky artichoke flavor that is perfectly used as a party platter to celebrate the end of winter. Any soft cheese rolled in herbs may be used as a substitute.
Gorgonzola is a blue cheese made from cow’s milk. It easily crumbles and has a salty bite. There are two types of gorgonzola to choose from: sweet or hot.
Landaff cheese is a cow’s milk cheese from Landaff Creamery. This cheese is tangy with a buttery texture and clean finish, perfect for a warm spring day. Cheddar from your local grocery store could be used as a substitute for Landaff.
