@Nellop:  this is a great idea! I do feel like crackers on the side would be a great touch!

What about having your catering staff divide up the cheeses and reconfigure the pieces into per-table “cheese trays” after you have done the cutting? I wouldn’t go for the completely pre-cut cubes-n-slices cheese tray layout, but rather one hunk and one knife per kind of cheese and let people cut their own. Your mileage may vary.

It shouldn’t take terribly long (much faster than individual cake servings), the fruit could be reallocated onto the boards too, and it provides a nice interactive element for the tables.

It’s worth offering crackers or bread because some people think it’s weird to eat cheese by itself, but further additions like chutney or nuts or quince paste or whatever are just a bonus. A delicious, delicious bonus.

Cheese trays also allow you to completely avoid any congestion/mess associated with a cheese buffet. That said, we had a cheese buffet, after dessert, and it wasn’t congested at all because people drifted by at different times.

It’s also worth thinking ahead about what you want to do with any leftover cheese (if any) and letting the staff know. We offered “cheese doggy bags” – not because we managed to think ahead, but because someone requested one and we were like oh HELLS yes. Yum.

My only question is.. how are you going to display it? Cheeses can’t stay out very long without being cold, so are you just going to bring it out when it’s cutting time?

Otherwise I would serve it with an array of wines, crackers, pretzels & fruits.

@Nellop:  Oh, well then okay =]

I was under the assumption most cheeses needed to be stored in a cooled, dark place, and refrigerated if no longer in a brick [unless you are having 1 flavor bricks for each tier].

I know there are a few cheeses that don’t need refrigerated at all.
