The holiday season is a great time to expand your cheese experience. You can do this at parties outside your home – a cheese platter is never far away – or do it yourself at home. I always appreciate when a host employs reusable cheese markers to identify what you’re about to consume. You simply write the name of the cheese on the marker and stab it right into the cheese. Hosts who use these are generally cheese lovers, so you know you’ll be trying something interesting.
If you’re already a fan of Castello® Blue Cheese, the holiday season is the perfect time to branch out to some of the exciting new cheeses from Castello®, like Castello® Reserve Aged Danish Havarti and the four new Castello® Alps Selection cheeses made from the milk of contented cows who graze on herbs and Alpine grasses high in the mountains of Bavaria. All of these cheeses are perfect for a platter, but they also can play starring roles in delicious appetizers.
