A cool tall glass of clamato juice helps highlight the flavours of a nice monterey jack cheese.
When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
Serve ripened cheeses at room temperature because cold can mask their flavours. To temper cheese, remove it from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes before serving, depending on the hardness of the cheese. Leave the cheese in a fresh, well-ventilated area and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
To ensure it stays fresher longer, make sure you close the lid of your Cheese Spread properly and keep refrigerated when not in use.
Be careful to not store cheese with strong-smelling foods because the cheese will breathe in the odors and absorb it – this can alter the taste and spoil the cheese.
