Gourmet Cheese Tasting Parties

Introduce your friends to a variety of international cheeses they have never tried before.

Prepare about a 1/4 lb. of cheese per person and an assortment of crackers and fruit slices. Include a balance of strong, mild and smoked cheeses with different textures from crumbly Blue Cheese and Feta to smooth triple cream cheeses and savory sliceable Gouda. Don't use heavily butter flavored crackers like Captain's Wafers as they dominate in flavor of the cheese.
