What to serve with Gruyere cheese

I am making a cheese plate with Gruyere cheese and am at loss as to what to serve with it.
Any ideas?

  1. I hope that I understand your question correctly. I would suggest at least 2 or 3 other cheeses to go along with the Gruyere. Perhaps an Irish white cheddar, Cabrales blue and a triple-cream brie. I would serve these with water crackers and toasted bagette slices. Also like to use some fresh fruit on the board such as sliced pears, jimaca and seedless grapes.

    1. This is way out of the norm as far as I know, but I loooove lingonberry jam served with my gruyere. It really is delicious.

        berry jam goes really well with brie too!

          that sounds really tasty. thanks

        2. Jfood agrees with diablo. His favorite restaurant has incredible cheeses and they serve the with marmelades. The blackberry jam is perfect with a gruyere. Another choice would be apple marmelade.

          1. Is it good cave aged gruyere? Try an Italian mostarda - fruit jams with sharp mustard kick, they go great with cheese.

              Wow, I've got more Mostarda than I know what to do with - great suggestion.

                Me too - I keep buying it and never use it, and have lots of gruyere on hand. Strangely, much as I love gruyere, I never think to serve it as part of a cheese course - I'll have to try it.
