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. We offer a variety of cheese tools from cheese sets to cheese planes. Each is used to serve cheese without being gummed up by its sticky deliciousness. Consider a cheese set, these make great gifts and when you serve your cheeses with it you will be presenting your establishment with a healthy dose of elegance and panache.
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.
Cheese planes are great for serving and slicing harder cheese like cheddar but they will ruin crumbly or soft cheeses such as Stilton or Brie. For serving a soft cheese, try a cheese knife, we carry double handled styles as well as cheese knives with a short blade. It is a major faux pa to slice parmesan cheese with a plane; this cheese must be served by breaking off a small portion with a cheese fork, that way the texture will allow the greatest amount of surface area so the natural flavors and aromas are enjoyed properly.
