Cheese trays are popular on both luncheon buffets as a main course item and on dinner buffets as a dessert item. Cheeses are presented much differently than the other cold buffet foods we have been talking about.
First, whole cheeses or cheeses in large pieces are generally more attractive than an arrangement of slices.This also helps the guest identify the varieties. Be sure to supply several knives so guests can cut their own portions.
Second, an assortment of fresh fruit is often included on a cheese tray. This adds a great deal to the appearance of a cheese presentation, and the flavors go well with cheese.The photograph on page 889 shows an example of a cheese and fruit presentation.
