Hilton Garden Inn is Staying Sharp for National Cheese Day and Brie-yond
Some may say “you got to brie-kidding me” that there’s actually a national day dedicated to the ultimate comfort food – cheese – and rightfully so! To celebrate National Cheese Day on June 4, Hilton Garden Inn is sharing some tips and tricks on how to take your party’s cheese platter to another level.
To help celebrate, below are some tips from Hilton’s Director of Brand Food & Beverage Kris Beck that are so Gouda, your guests won’t be able to stop cheesing:
- Gather all the cheese, cured meats and accoutrements: The more shapes and colors the better to ensure no space is left on the board
- Let the cheese breathe: For maximum flavor and experience, set your board up a few hours in advance, cover it and let it sit at room temperature. This will help the cheeses soften, breathe and open up, just like a bottle of wine decanting
- Don’t forget to pair! Get a few different types of breads, such as thin and thick crackers, a French baguette and a multi-grain toast. Prepare to be amazed as the flavors of the cheese will often change simply by the bread you choose
- Localization is key: Include some favorite local products to give your board its own unique spin
Pair your customized cheese board with your favorite wine. Try a Chardonnay with Gruyere or try a Cabernet Sauvignon with aged Gouda. Or keep it local with a hometown wine!
Looking to celebrate the holiday without lifting a finger? Stop by the nearest Hilton Garden Inn location to try the Artisan Cheese Tasting Board available at the Garden Grille, Hilton Garden Inn’s on-property restaurant. Garden Grille locations also have a wide range of wines including varietals from local wineries that are the perfect partner in wine to the Artisan Cheese Tasting Board.
