HOW TO KEEP A CHEESE-BOARD in Tip-Top Condition Outside the Fridge
Entertaining, particularly at Christmas involves a lot of potential to-ing and fro-ing with the cheese-board. Above all cheese hates the variation of temperature, from cold to warm and back again.
So here is a solution: keep the cheeses on the cheeseboard fresh as daisies by covering the entire board with a CLEAN, wet tea towel that has been rung out so that it is just damp.
This will prevent the air drying out the cheeses; and then the cheese-board should remain covered between lunch and supper in an UNHEATED room, waiting for its next entrance. (Make sure the door is closed, in case Fido is on the loose.)
