Holiday Entertaining Ideas!

'Tis the season for food, family, and friends! With Thanksgiving right around the corner and Christmas a month away, lifestyle contributor Limor Suss is sharing some ideas for hosting some holiday gatherings this year!

Any holiday get together staple is a cheeseboard! To make the perfect cheeseboard, start with three to five different Castello Cheeses, all with a different flavor profile and texture.

The Castello Havarti Cheese is the perfect mild cheese that everyone will enjoy. It’s creamy, buttery, and super approachable. It’s also available in six varieties like Dill and Jalapeno.

If you like aged cheese, the Castello Aged Havarti is aged for 12 months and has a smooth texture and a bold, creamy, and caramel flavor.

For a fun round shape to the board, the Castello Gouda is also a mild crowd favorite! And to round out the platter, the Castello Danish Blue Cheese provides a bold, strong, sharp flavorful cheese to the mix.

Now that you have the cheeses in place, add your favorite dried fruit, honey, olives, crackers, chocolate and any delicious pairing you can think of! The trick is not to leave any space on the platter. For more cheese platter inspiration, visit the Castello Cheese website.

Simple Mills

If you’re looking for a better-for-you cracker this holiday season, check out Simple Mills! They just introduced their Organic Seed Flour Cracker, which is just the right size and texture for all of your favorite appetizers! They’re perfect for an addition to a cheese platter or as a side to soup.

But Simple Mills doesn’t just stop at crackers, they have a variety of better-for-you cookies, snack bars, and baking mixes! All made with purposeful clean, nutrient-dense ingredients and nothing artificial, ever. They’re all certified Gluten-Free and Paleo-friendly.
