I am passionate about cheese plates. Not only are they filled with delicious cheese for me to eat, they’re fun to look at. A good cheese plate is a study in flavour equilibrium, but a truly excellent cheese plate is arranged in a visually pleasing, inviting manner. This Instagram account can teach you how to achieve both.

Each cheesy photo Cheese by Numbers posts contains a detailed description of everything on the board, including the fruit and veg, crunchy stuff, sweets, and garnish. Swipe through, and you’ll receive step-by-step visual instructions that tell you exactly where and when to place each component on the board. (Beyond building boards, the account is also a great resource for learning about new food brands—both cheese and otherwise.)

Once you’ve got the hang of building beautiful dairy-based arrangements, feel free to play around and build your own inspired boards. In the words of our (very wise) managing editor, Virginia Smith, “the way to build a cheese plate is with your heart.”
