How to Make a Summer Cheese Board | Summer Cheese, Wine and Accoutrements
Break out the ice buckets, its Rose season! The perfect companion for cold and fresh Whites and Rose's is a summer cheese board. Whether you're entertaining guests or relaxing on your patio, there is nothing quite like enjoying a summer cheese board with your favorite Pinot Grigio, Prosecco, Sauvignon Blanc or Rose.
To make the ideal summer cheese board choose we've paired summery cheeses and wines with bright, fun and fruity Terrapin Ridge Farms products.
Select from cheeses below, thoughtfully picked to perfectly balance our summer products:
Goat Cheese (creamy, accents sweetness)
Mascarpone Cheese (creamy, light, slightly sweet)
Feta (crumbly, slight bitter)
Gruyere (hard, sweet but salty Swiss)
Pro Tip: Serve the goat cheese and mascarpone in a bowl or plate on top of cheeseboard. Decorate the other cheeses with berries or flowers sprinkled on top or along the sides.
Then chose from Terrapin Ridge Farm's seasonally inspired products and accoutrements:
Terrapin Ridge Farms Raspberry Wasabi Mustard
Terrapin Ridge Farms Peach Honey Mustard
Terrapin Ridge Farms Margarita Jelly
Terrapin Ridge Farms Key Lime Pie Jelly
Terrapin Ridge Farms Mango Habanero Jam
Sea Salt Crackers
Summer Flowers or leaves for decoration
Peaches, Berries and Melons to pair and for decoration
Pro Tip: Be creative! We like our summer cheese boards to be colorful and reminiscent of the best parts of the season. Grill stone fruit or melons for an extra kick.
We tasted all possible pairings and rated these the best. Try for yourself!
