The cooling temps are a good time to feast on lots of cheese to warm your soul and your tummy.

Thanksgiving is coming up, and a big, festive cheese platter is the perfect way to show gratitude for delicious food and all the loved ones
gathered around you. It’s also a good time to ball out with a killer cheese board that everyone will thank you for.
It’s a lot easier to put together an impressive spread than you think.
Here’s how to build a holiday cheese plate in 5 simple steps.
I started my cheese-mas celebrating on Wednesday, when my dear friend Adrienne was visiting her homeland of Chicago from Los Angeles. We broke into the holy grail of Christmas cheese, Rush Creek Reserve. This is one of those cheeses that curd nerds look forward to all year long. It’s a young cheese with a goopy texture, a fragrant orange rind, and a wreath of spruce bark that encircles the wheel. The paste is rich, silky, and tastes of freshly rendered bacon fat. We ate it with warm multigrain bread from Publican Quality Bread (my favorite baker), cornichons, and local Granny Smith apples wrapped in bacon from Butcher Larder (my favorite butcher shop). We destroyed the whole wheel in about five minutes.
Here are my favorite cheesy, sexy, or gothy picks to help you with your holiday gift giving this year. It’s very food and booze heavy, with an emphasis on local, artisan goods. I hope you enjoy.
