As you may know, Christmas in my part of the world is a hot summers day. To me, that means swimming, barbeques, prawns and cocktails. This year, Christmas is at my place, so of course I want to be sharing my gorgeous home made cheese for my family to enjoy. I will be kicking off the day with a couple of cheesy starters before our traditional Christmas barbeque, and in this post I want to share my Christmas cheese board ideas for summer.

I have decided to start off our Christmas meal with both the Brioche Christmas Tree (which turned out exceptionally well in my trial run) as well as a Christmas Cheese Board before serving the main meal.

The variables are many which means there are plenty of learning curves to experience when you get into cheese making. Read more
