For a buffet party serve 5-7 (for a dinner party 3-4) different cheeses,
make sure that you have a good variety with different textures and flavours,
don't serve cheese that is hard to cut. Serve the cheeses on a large plate,
or an attractive chopping board, accompanied with cheese knives. Lay the cheeses
out so that they are attractive and accompany with walnuts,wedges of figs, plum
or quince cheese and a bunch of grapes. Serve with slices of walnut bread and
or baguette or similar bread, oatcakes (recipe below) or other plain biscuits
(strong flavoured biscuits over power the flavour of the cheese).
