Don’t underestimate the power of a beautiful presentation on a cheese board. After all, a cheese board may taste amazing, but your guests will most likely remember the gorgeous appearance just as much. Group similar cheeses together, don’t overcrowd your platter, incorporate colorful accompaniments to give the platter some life, and if you feel like getting a little fancy, add labels to note all of the different cheeses and where they come from.

Lastly, make sure you store your cheese properly before and after you eat it. Chances are you won’t devour every last morsel on the cheese platter, and nobody wants to see that delicious Brie go to waste. Wrap in parchment paper and store in a plastic bag to ensure that you can enjoy that cheese over and over again.
