I’ve always struggled with the idea whether cheese is a dessert or not. I really started to question it when I would see it on the appetizer section and on the dessert menu–at the same restaurant! All I know is that I love it! I’ve come to terms with the fact that cheese is great no matter what meal it goes along with, it just needs the right wingmen of flavors to define it. My boyfriend (Patrick aka Pattycake) got me really into brie in grad school, after that my taste buds went wild and I started trying some of the more exotic cheeses. These days I rarely entertain without a good cheeseplate on the table. Click here to see how I assembled the plate and the goodies that I put along with it.
