Shannon T at Whole Foods says that when you're considering putting a cheese plate together, working in odd numbers is always best because it stands out to the eye. She tends to work with either three or five cheeses when the plate is to be served before a meal, or three when it's to be presented after a meal.

Our Own Shannon T Featured in the Portland Press Herald!
Here at 37 Cooks, we have cooks with a wide variety of cooking experience. Shannon T is a cheese expert and the author of the blog, Edible Obsessions. She was recently featured in an article for Thanksgiving but her advice in this article can apply to Hannukah and Christmas festivities as well. Shannon says, "A good cheese plate isn't restricted by one singular religion or holiday (though, you might be more inclined to look for Kosher or vegetable rennet based cheeses for Jewish Holidays). Cheese should have a place at every holiday table. Heck, there are so many bark wrapped cheeses out there that they could even be celebrated on Arbor Day!" - 37 Cooks
