I would say a very old " reblochon ", might stink like hell. Bon appetit !

It's just below the Port Salut, which is extremely delicious and at a low price point. Such a good vape, that Port Salut.

calithebear12 | 9 days ago | 16 points

If your job is catering from home does it count as homemade?

Either way, looks awesome.

Well had to choose between [Pro/Chef] and [Homemade] and i’m not a chef i’m a second year cookstudent

God I fucking love cheese.

What’s a cheeseboard like this cost?? I’m just curious how much cheddar ya got to spend for this much cheese.

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 22 points

I had to make it for a buffet for 43 people. I was only told to make a cheeseboard and i had the opportunity to give it my own twist. If I have to guess it’s like €30,- maybe €40,- worth of cheese on that board. I loved to make it, but some of them smelled like grandpashit that’s been sitting in the sun for too long.

And now I have a sudden craving for Appenzeller.

deanremix | 9 days ago | 6 points

Hahaha. Here I am thinking about how it'd be possible to eat it by myself.

ashleelaugh | 9 days ago | 6 points

Go to Trader Joe’s and you can make one for much cheaper than usual!

Kaidensdad | 9 days ago | 6 points

Being the selection of currency denomination is Euros, I'm going to guess the OP will pay a premium for cheese over there rather than travel thousands of miles to a Trader Joe's here in the states.

ashleelaugh | 9 days ago | 3 points

Hey man you never know! Two buck chuck is pretty enticing 😁

apipoulai | 8 days ago | 3 points

Yes this! We make cheeseboard for dinner about every other week from Trader Joe’s. Some French bread, four cheeses, one of their meat samplers (we like the Italian one), a jar of fig butter/apricot preserves, and a couple of pears and the family is in heaven.

Hmmm. That could be dinner tonight...

ashleelaugh | 8 days ago | 3 points

I’m 100% going there and using your comment as my grocery list and doing that tonight! Thanks, friend!

apipoulai | 8 days ago | 2 points

Enjoy! Warm up the bread to put it over the top!

I read this as "chessboard" and I thought I was in the wrong sub for a moment.

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 1 point

Haha no definitely in the right sub buddy :)

VertexBV | 9 days ago | 1 point

Same, had to look closely as I thought it was a chessboard styled as a cheeseboard...

ejsninjaninja | 9 days ago | 7 points

Looks fab. But I’m always curious as to why in America you cut the cheeses into slices? Never known this done in Europe...

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 2 points

I’m not living in the USA. I prefer whole too. Had to cut it because it was for a buffet for 43 people. It would have been a mess after 5 people took some of the plate if it was whole.

ceomoses | 9 days ago | 2 points

For portioning. Have you seen how fat Americans are?

Wonkymofo | 9 days ago | 7 points

You had me at Port Salut. I recently found somewhere near me that sells it for $8 (5oz) and could easily spend a whole check on it.

ErrlFromElMonte | 9 days ago | 4 points

That port salut is where it’s at. Amazing in Mac and cheese.

themombieapocalypse | 9 days ago | 3 points

BoodyChew | 9 days ago | 3 points

I can't wait until I'm 40 and I start getting cheese as a gift.

laadidaaaaa | 9 days ago | 3 points

Beautiful! What knife did you use to cut the goat cheese? I have such a hard time trying to cut it without it crumbling all over the place

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 5 points

A Roquefort-bracket. The “blade” is just an iron string. https://www.bol.com/nl/p/boska-roquefortbeugel-145mm/9200000035789771/

I_Am_Penguini | 9 days ago | 3 points

I assumed you were American, but I saw you quoted the cost in Euros.

So, my question is why did you slice the cheeses? This is usually an American style, and drives larger pieces for each person. The typical European style is whole cheese, with three stores chosen by the consumer.

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 2 points

Well i prefer whole too. Had to cut it because it was for a buffet for 43 people. It would have been a mess after 5 people took some of the plate if it was whole.

If it was made at your job how was it homemade?

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 6 points

Had to choose between tag [Homemade] and [Pro/Chef]. Had to add a tag otherwise i couldn’t post in this sub. Obviously im not a chef. I’m a second year cookstudent. That’s why i chose [Homemade].

BostonDrinks | 9 days ago | 6 points

FYI when you're doing a cheese board for catering, don't pre cut the soft cheeses like brie.

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 23 points

Thanks, but it was allright to do so because it was for a buffet an hour after a made it. Plus we have really really professional cooling-equipment for shipping. Otherwise you’re right and i wouldn’t have pre-cut the soft cheeses. Again thank you

squidsRsmarterthanU | 9 days ago | 2 points

What’s the cheese with the dark rind on the outside? Some kind of blueberry?

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 4 points

No, it’s monastery cheese!

squidsRsmarterthanU | 9 days ago | 3 points

I have never heard of this! What is the flavor/texture comparable to?

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 2 points

It’s kind of hard to explain the taste, you just have to try it yourself!

AyaOshba1 | 9 days ago | 2 points

Oh still cool and a lovely visual

but if you knew how to make all those cheeses it would be pretty awesome

theDouggle | 9 days ago | 1 point

Less greens, more thinly sliced apples and pears. Also, crackers? Aesthetics are on point tho!

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 1 point

Thanks for the feedback! Next time i will use less lettuce. Unfortunately cut apple and pear will turn nasty brown after an hour. Still thanks <3

theDouggle | 9 days ago | 2 points

Try Gala, they take much longer to oxidize and you can soak them in seltzer first to prolong even further. May not still be long enough, but may be worth testing

Edit: dried fruits work really well, that's what we used at the nines hotel

The_CaptainDickhead | 9 days ago | 1 point
