Can the cheeses be switched out for a different kind?
Yes, the cheeses can be easily switched out for a different kind. In fact, many people like to change up the cheeses from time to time to keep things interesting. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when swapping out cheeses. First, pay attention to the strength of the cheese. A strong cheese will overpower more delicate flavors, so it's important to make sure that the other cheeses on the board can stand up to it. The second would be to consider the textures.
