A Cheese Course Bento

I've been telling F&B that one of my favorite parts of Europe is the addition of a cheese course to the dinner menu.

Of all the yummy possible ideas in the world, extra cheese, after dinner, might just win. And that includes dessert.

So today, in honor of this amazing idea, we made a cheese course style bento.



Ben had fresh garlic naan, along with sharp orange cheddar, dill white cheddar, and smoked gouda. I need a few more cheese options to really have a good cheese course, but this will do for now. To go with that, he has strawberries, blackberries and an almond poppyseed muffin.

I may regret introducing them to the cheese course concept. They ate the smoked gouda I bought for me.

  1. My daughter, a just turned 11 cheese connoisseur would love this. She likes these kind as well as blue, feta and goat cheese although we've never had dill flavored white cheddar. Sounds yummy!

  2. Ah, our little cheese-plate-eaters would heartily approve of this bento! Ro's fave right now is white cheddar (the most expensive one, ugh), while Ree is on a havarti kick. I'm a brie girl, and luckily neither one of them will touch it.
