Table cheese refers to any type of cheese that can be served on its own as a standalone accompaniment or used as an ingredient in various dishes, including salads and appetizers. It can also be a part of the main course. Table cheeses are often paired with different wines based on their flavors.
These cheeses can be soft, such as Feta and Fontina, or semi-soft to hard, such as Gouda and Pecorino. Adding a slice of table cheese to your appetizers or main meals is a great way to enhance their flavor. Feta, in particular, is often considered the ultimate table cheese as it can be enjoyed throughout the meal, including with dessert fruits.
