Meet CLEO!

Cheese board personality: THE MAXIMALIST

You don’t like people to go hungry. Feeding their stomachs feels like feeding their souls to you. You want a big cheese plate with 5-7 cheeses. You know it’s more than you’ll need but better to be safe than sorry. You like big flavors too. Let’s be honest, you’ll be so busy entertaining, the cheese plate will be your meal. You’re offering a great variety of vino to go with the plate so there will be good match ups available for everyone.

MAKING YOUR BOARD: You want something spreadable, something you can cut a wedge off of, some chunks and some slices and sticks. You’re looking to mix it up a little with interesting variations on the basics: flavored nuts, interesting pickles, and even some chocolate.
