Cheese By Numbers

Everyone loves a good cheese plate, but sometimes they can be intimidating to build. Look no further! 

We're bringing you our Cheese By Numbers guides to help. 

It's simple, essentially the "Paint by Number" concept - with cheese. Follow the instructions and build the plate in order of number, clockwise from the top of the plate.
