A cheesemonger’s guide to creating a festive cheese hamper

The holidays are fast approaching and you know what that means - it’s time to start thinking about gifts!

Choose your cheese selection wisely

The secret to making an eye-catching cheese hamper is selecting the right assortment of cheeses. To make sure your gift stands out from the rest, choose an array of cheeses that vary in colour, texture, flavour, and origin. For instance, include some creamy Brie alongside a sharp Cheddar or combine a smoky Gouda with a slice of tangy goat cheese. Aim for five different types of cheese in total - this should provide plenty of variety without overwhelming your recipient.

Consider other accompaniments

For added pzazz, consider including other accompaniments in your cheese hamper. Fresh fruits such as grapes or apples pair wonderfully with certain types of cheese while crackers or breadsticks offer something crunchy to contrast with the softness of the cheese. You could even add some chutney or pickles if you’re feeling adventurous! Just remember to research which accompaniments would best match each type of cheese before making any final decisions.

Presentation is key

Finally, it’s essential to ensure that your festive hamper looks attractive too. Using natural materials like wicker or rattan can help give off an earthy feel while fabrics like linen will provide extra texture and visual interest. You may also want to consider adding decorative greenery such as holly sprigs or pinecones for a traditional holiday look. Once everything is assembled, don’t forget to secure it with some twine for extra charm! 

Creating the perfect cheese hamper doesn't have to be hard work; all it takes is a little bit of creativity and knowledge from an experienced cheesemonger! By carefully selecting different types of cheese and adding colourful accompaniments into the mix, you can craft something truly special that's sure to impress this holiday season. So don't hesitate - start building your festive cheese hamper today!
