Soft-ripened Cheese

Virtually any occasion is an ideal time to pull out a platter of soft-ripened cheese to serve to family and friends. From casual dining outside on the deck or patio to a picnic in the park to a formal occasion in your dining room, cheese can be an integral part of any meal or ideal as an appetizer or after-dinner snack. At Williams-Sonoma, we understand that cheese is often an important part of your gatherings. That’s why we have an extensive array of cheese collections to please even the most discerning cheese-loving palate. All cheeses are shipped in chilled containers to ensure freshness. We recommend serving our cheeses at room temperature to experience the best flavor. If you have any cheese remaining, wrap it in parchment paper and plastic wrap or a sealed container and refrigerate it.

As you prepare a delectable platter of cheese to serve, you’ll need functional cheese knives to simplify the process. Cheese knives are designed to slice through cheeses of varying degrees of hardness and softness. Choose knives with distinctive handles in marble, copper or even olivewood to fit with your other kitchen and dining accessories. You’ll appreciate implements, such as spreader sets, which enable you to scoop and spread soft cheeses on bread and crackers.

After slicing and spreading the cheeses, you’ll be ready to arrange them artfully on cheese boards and accessories. These entertaining pieces are the ideal accessories for dinner parties and intimate gatherings. Imagine arranging a cheese board in marble, olivewood or slate. Some cheese boards are equipped with a built-in slicer for added convenience.

It’s always a divine combination when you pair soft-ripened cheese with fine wine. Imagine everyone’s enjoyment of a rich and full-bodied wine, served in beautiful wine glasses. A rich Cabernet is a suitable companion to a cheese collection that includes not only cheeses but also dried fruit and nuts. You can set a casually rustic appetizer table outdoors with farm cheeses and beverages in outdoor drinkware. These strong and sturdy glassware pieces are both beautiful and shatterproof, so you can use them without worry for all of your outdoor gatherings.

Spreading soft-ripened cheese onto crusty Italian bread or flaky crackers promises to be a delectable dining experience. Choose from the freshest of cheese in both cow’s and goat’s milk. From Europe to the farms of the United States, get ready to enjoy the finest cheeses available to whet your appetite.
