When I’m playing dervish in the kitchen, I like to set out a snacking cheese. A little nibble for me, a little nosh for any guests who might be lingering. In my mind, a good snacking cheese must be so full of flavor that it doesn’t need any jewelry – well, maybe a few grapes. But it should stand on its own. And it should dazzle, bite after bite.
I’ve written about most of these before, but I return to them. They live with me. They are my go-to snacking cheeses. And the best part? You should be able to find them at any decent cheese counter – from Whole Foods to your local fromagerie.
Bon appétit and happy holidays! Let me know if you have any snacking faves.
