Union Square is decked out with more white lights than a Diwali festival, drugstore chains are now displaying their trusty battery-powered dancing Frosty the Snowman, and the evites to holiday parties are eying your inbox. The winter holiday season is here. No matter whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, the opportunity to share a glass of bubbly at a party with your friends near some mistletoe, or the seasonal changing of Hershey kiss wrapper color,  you’re probably going to be going to or hosting a party sometime soon.

It goes without saying then that you’re going to need to bring something cheesy somewhere. Just in case you wanted to do something beyond bring a cheese plate, I compiled my favorite cheese recipes for you that are fit for a holiday party. Some are app style, some are for sit down meals.

These are recipes that I’ve used over and over again throughout the years or have recently caught my eye for my own holiday events. I hope you enjoy them!



Cheeseballs: Just in case you haven’t heard me professing my love to cheeseballs yet, let me do it here. I love a good artisan cheese ball, and I created these recipes (one pictured above) for NPR’s Kitchen Window series to publicly declare my adoration. The flavors in each cheeseball were inspired by the amazing work of the cheesemaker.
