1 1-pound wheel brie cheese
12 ounces yellow cheddar cheese
12 ounces dill havarti cheese
12 ounces bleu cheese
Arrange the cheeses decoratively on a serving platter. Serve with assorted party crackers, breads, mustards and chutney.
To serve, slice a wedge out of the Brie cheese to ‘start.’ Cut a few slices of one type of the cheese. Have another type cut into cubes for variety. Remember to have a sharp cheese slicer available as well as a cocktail spreader for softer cheeses.
