This little post is dedicated for those evenings, catching up with friends over wine and cheese, or just simply on your own, watching your favourite series on Netflix. The Honey Company™ has in its collection interesting honey varietals you can pair with your cheese platter.  Honey drizzled over cheese accompanied by bread, crackers, fresh fruit, dry fruit, nuts and herbs.

Key Points to Remember when making a cheese platter:
1. The cheese you use should be of room temperature.
2. A little honey goes a long way. So drizzle honey on cheese lightly.
3. Keep roasted or salted nuts.
4. Keep raisins, figs, dates and fresh fruits like slices of green/red apples, citrus fruits, grapes, watermelon and pineapple.
5. Multigrain breads and crackers.
6. Spice Shakers with Chilli flakes, Coarsely ground black pepper, Oregano and Salt.
7. Pickled capers.
8. Juliennes of fresh carrot and sticks of cucumber.
8. Not to forget the wine or beer. And for teetotalers, some interesting mocktails.

The pairing we have recommended is playing it safe, so you can’t go wrong with our suggestions.
