Joanna met up with Sydney Willcox, the head cheesemonger of Murray's in New York City. Sydney explained some of the basics of putting together a good cheese plate experience, including a rule of thumb for amount of cheese per guest, and the order in which cheeses should be placed on the board (mildest to most pungent).
The best part is that Sydney picked out six great cheeses and Joanna describes each, as well as a few accompaniments.
Such a nice cheese board! Check the whole thing out here:
