At most formal catering events, a cheese spread is served. Make sure you have all of the cheese tools you need to let guests slice and serve their own cheese.
When choosing your cheese tools, look for ones that will match the occasion. A standard stainless steel cheese plane is easy to use and attractive, making it ideal for a multitude of occasions. However, for weddings and other upscale events, you might want to invest in a set of tools for serving cheese. They are available in several fancy styles, including gold and silver plating. A standard cheese slicer is generally put to better use in the catering kitchen than at the buffet table.
