Festive Cabot Cheddar Tree

Festive Cabot Cheddar Tree

At your next holiday gathering, try this fun and festive idea for displaying a variety of Cabot cheeses – a lactose free cheddar tree! This creative take on the traditional cheese platter livens up any food table and is loved by kids and adults alike.



  1. Cut each bar of cheddar into 1-inch cubes.
  2. On large platter or cutting board, arrange cubes in rows to form tree shape, using different flavor for each row and separating flavors with thyme sprigs and rows of tomatoes or olives.
  3. For star on top, peel skin from mushroom; press star pattern into mushroom with point of knife.
