Summer Symphony: Cheeseboards

July 11, 2018
the taste of Italian Gargonzola

Fresh Fruit & Cheese Gourmet Gift Box

For a sensational appetizer that appeals to guests with many different palettes, some with restricted diets consider serving a Summer Symphony of flavors and textures: Cheeseboards! Cheddar, Goat, Bleu, Feta, Parmigiano and Farmstead pair superbly with fresh fruit, jam and nuts.

Salty, Sweet, Tangy and Sour Mingle

Did you know that there are 2000 plus hard and soft cheeses in shades of white, cream and yellow? You can’t go wrong if you start with what you love. Cheddar, originating in England, is always a star. You’ll want some exotic sounding cheeses too. Hit your local farmer’s market, sample a few new cheeses and be inventive. Cheesemongers have profound love for cheese and will help you select the best!

Bold, Complex, Regional

Through a long, caring and patient process that starts with raising cows and goats, cheesemongers craft elaborate cheeses. The result is more a work of art than a savory snack! Go for it and try an intriguing French cheese like Normandy Camembert, a Spanish cheese with smokiness like Idiazabel (Northern Spain) or a Sonoma California  Bellwether Farms® Carmody Cheese. Elevate the taste of cheese by adding jams, chocolate and surprises like lemon curd.

Create a colorful cheeseboard with fresh or dried fruit. Present the summer symphony cheeseboards on marble slates that will keep the cheese slightly cool to room temperature. Accessorize the boards with a few quality cheese knives. Style the cheese in bite size squares, pie slices and uneven cubes. Serve crackers alongside in rustic baskets. Trending now: Straight lines of fruit, cheese and nuts on rectangular plates.

Prepare a sweet, hearty or Italian cheeseboard for summer entertaining. What’s your favorite?

The Sweet Goat

Creamy Goat Cheese, Fresh Apricots, Fresh Ripe Peaches, Brie Creamy Cheese Spread Cream Cheese Topped with Lemon Curd, Charcuterie, Italian Dry Salame Whole Almonds, Small Jar Of Cherry Jam, Small Jar Of Honey, Partners Olive Oil & Sea Salt Crackers

What could be more perfect for summer entertaining than a pretty display of gourmet cheese and fruit? Our Fresh Fruit & Cheese Gourmet Gift Box is reminiscent of the Gorgonzola cheeses of Italy! Vintage Gourmet Fruit & Cheese Gift Basket features delicious ripe fruit ready for guests, Sierra Nevada® Jack Cheese and a tempting chocolate pairing.

Picture Perfect Smile Farms Golf Outing

October 18, 2017
Smile Farms Golf Outing in Sands Point, NY

Registration and Putting Green Contest

We were thrilled to join Smile Farms in Sands Point, New York, for the Third Annual Golf Outing! A record number of guests enjoyed a full day of golf, philanthropy and volunteerism followed by a semi formal cocktail reception and dinner.

Sunrise on Long Island’s Cow Neck Peninsula

It was a picturesque morning with blue skies and summery weather.  Golfers met in the clubhouse for a delicious hot breakfast buffet, registration and contest at the practice putting green.

On the Dance Floor — Smile Farms Golf Outing

The first shotgun at 8:00 AM led the way for a day of fantastic golf with Hole-in-One prizes like airline tickets and a $25,000 cash grand prize! What goes good with a game of golf? A break & delicious bbq lunch! 

On the back nine, golfers swung straight — avoiding the beach to ace the 17th Hole in One Challenge.

Throughout the day guests bid on silent auction items — Fall and Spa gift baskets were donated by 1800baskets.com

The highlight of Smile Farms Third Annual Golf Outing’s reception was a lively, fun performance by the talented FREE Players Ensemble.

Smile Farms Staff — Congratulations on hosting a successful Golf Outing!  It was a pleasure to be a part of this first class event and to meet and volunteer alongside everyone.
