Have a holly jolly Christmas, it’s the best time of the year! With the holiday’s in full swing, no party would be complete without a festive spread. For our family, it includes a cheese platter arranged with Castello products. They carry several delectable cheese brands, like Arla, Tre Stelle, Apetina, and Arla Dofino. We love them all, but this festive season we’re creating an impressive platter of Arla Dofino cheeses. They’re delicious, partner well with other foods, and satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
Creating an attractive display always starts with a cheese board. It’s our workstation where we can cut cheeses into tiny or creative shapes. The Totally Bamboo Arla Cutting & Serving Board is so beautiful. The natural grain and pattern of the bamboo makes its very eye appealing.
The Arla Dofino Havarti is by far our favorite cheese. It comes in cylinders, loaves or cream blocks; it’s also available in a variety of flavors. We usually purchase the cylinders of Havarti cheese because it’s the right shape for sandwiches or patties. The Classic Cheese flavor is rich and adds a lovely texture to your meals. The Jalapeno flavored cheese has a medium heat kick to it that can transform a recipe from blah to sassy! Both melt really nice and have that stringy quality that kids dig.
The Dofino cheese loaves are super creamy and come in nine flavors. The soft texture lends itself as the ideal sandwich and cracker spread. They’re delicious, addictive and savory. All flavors can be added to sauces, dips, and soup. We made a grilled cheese with the Herb & Spice flavor, along with onions and tomatoes, and it was a big hit with the kiddos. We have a huge get together with family happening soon, and these loaves will be a major part of our horderves!
Very often, we just like to cut cheese up into cubes, and so our guests can create their own horderves. Not everyone likes the same ingredients on their appetizers, so they have the freedom to make their own choices.
I’ve heard about cheese markers but have never used them. The set I got are porcelain and came with a whiteboard marker. They’re quite handy; you can write the brand and flavor of cheese on them. These markers have saved me answering the same question many times. They wipe clean very easily and take up very little storage space.
Thanks to Arla Dofino, I don’t have to work so hard to make a tasty display. I can mingle, catch up, and create some cherished and memorable moments. That’s what the holidays are all about. Cheese also makes a great holiday or housewarming gift! fa la la la la Happy Holidays!
