Using the same knife for preparation and serving will mix the tastes of each cheese and potentially change the flavor.
When serving the cheeses it is helpful to serve them on cheese boards that has a contrasting background for a appealing appearance. The board should also be large enough that the different kinds of cheeses are not allowed to touch. Accompany each cheese board of tray with plenty of crackers, breads, or fruits and you are ready to host your party and serve your chilled wine to your guests while enjoying the company of friends. Everyone will be amazed with just how well your party came together while you are free to have a good time.
