Cheese plates

Soon I am having a little get together with my neighbors, and a few of my Atlanta girlfriends are coming up to join in the fun, too! I've always wanted to set up a fancy-schmancy cheese plate at a party, and I think this is the night to make it happen. Does anyone have any words of advice, or better yet -- a cheese they'd like to recommend? I am pretty uneducated when it comes to wine and cheese pairings...all I know is, I love wine, and I love cheese....

  1. See if you can find fresh burrata, and pair it with some tomato and basil (sooo good - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burrata). Also, make sure you have a goat cheese!

  2. Something hard, something soft, something really stinky. Also, some prociutto and sausage. Yum!

  3. Joanna from A Cup of Jo did a great couple of posts about cheese that I LOVED. I am also a huge fan of wine and cheese. Hope this helps!

    Definitely the cheese from Trader Joe's. It has a great selection and is, of course, affordable.

  5. I think the cheese plates that are slate so that you can use chalk to write down the names of the cheeses used is super cute and functional!

    Beecher's cheese in Seattle is the best, but that doesn't help you in Athens. :)
