FAQs about cheese platters
What should be in a cheese platter?
A great cheese platter usually features a variety of cheeses with different textures and flavours. These can include a mix of:
- Soft cheeses (like Brie or Camembert)
- Semi-hard cheeses (like Cheddar or Gouda)
- Hard cheeses (like Parmesan or aged Cheddar)
- Blue cheese (like Roquefort or Gorgonzola)
For an Australian twist, you might include local specialties like King Island Dairy's Roaring Forties Blue or a velvety Tasmanian Brie.
Beyond cheese, add in some cured meats if you fancy, fresh and dried fruits, an assortment of nuts, and different types of crackers or bread. Olives, pickles or other pickled veggies also provide a nice tangy contrast to the creaminess of the cheese.
How far in advance should I order a cheese platter?
We recommend ordering your cheese platter 1-2 days before your event to ensure delivery. However, we do have catering partners that can handle orders within as little as 90 minutes.
Can I get a cheese platter that caters to specific dietary needs?
Yes, many of our catering partners offer cheese platters that can cater to a range of dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and more.
What size cheese platter should I order for my event?
This depends on the number of guests and the type of event. For a light snack at a casual gathering, a smaller platter might suffice. For a larger event or if the cheese platter is a main feature of the meal, you might want to consider a larger option or even a grazing table.
Can I customise my cheese platter?
Many of our caterers offer customisation options for their cheese platters. You can typically choose from a range of cheeses, types of crackers, and accompaniments.
What is the delivery range for cheese platters?
We offer cheese platter delivery to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and Canberra, plus many other locations around Australia.
What foods are good for a cheese platter?
To complement the flavours of the cheese, you can include a variety of other foods on your cheese platter.
- Cured meats like prosciutto, salami or pepperoni are popular
- Fresh fruits like grapes, apples, pears or figs add a sweet and refreshing contrast
- Dried fruits like apricots, dates or figs offer a chewy texture
- Nuts such as almonds, walnuts or pecans provide a much-needed crunch
- Crackers or slices of baguette serve as a great base for the cheese
- Finally, a sweet touch could be added with a dollop of honey, a jar of fig jam, or a sprinkle of dark chocolate chips
- Don't forget the pickles or olives for a bit of acid to balance it all out!
It's all about creating a balance of flavours and textures that work well together.
