Mix and match your favorite premium Beemster with the perfect accompaniments to blow your guests away.

Directions

  1. Take the cheeses out of the fridge and let them come to room temperature, 15 min.
  2. Arrange the cheeses on a cheese board. Cut a few slices out of each wedge of cheese.
  3. Distribute the fig jam, grapes, crackers, nuts, mustard, and salami around the board.
  4. Serve with 4 cheese knives, or other small knives, for each wedge of cheese. Keep cheese board loosely covered with plastic wrap and remove 15 min. before guests arrive.  

TIP: Swap out Beemster Premium Goat for Beemster Graskaas for a creamier, sweeter alternative.
