Cocktail Party Tips

  • Cut cheese fresh from the refrigerator. It is easier to cut when cold.
  • Set cheese out 30 minutes to one hour before guests arrive. Cold temperatures mute the flavour.
  • If you don't have a cheese slicer, use a potato peeler to cut thin slices of hard cheeses like Parmesan and Asiago.
  • Cutting vegetables or fruit into bite-size pieces can help discourage double dipping.
  • Don’t let the vegetables get all the love. Fruit platters can be a fun alternative! Try strawberries, pineapple chunks, grapes, or other fresh fruit in season.
  • Veggie platters make an appearance at most parties. Try assembling your own, so you can choose the vegetables that best suit your dip.
