Tips for Tasting
Taste the Strength
Taste your cheeses in order of strength, starting with the mildest flavors and working your way up to the bold and intense cheeses.
Front the Inside Out
The true base flavor of the cheese is on the inside, while the exterior displays more concentrated flavors that are affected by various outside elements.
Cleanse the Palate
Cleanse the palate after tasting each cheese with sorbet, bread, apple slices or pickles. Tart or citrus flavors, such as pineapple or grapefruit will also work.
Be careful not to mix your cheeses, as you won't get the full effect. Be sure to wipe your plate clean after each taste.
