18 M’sian IG stores selling curated cheese platters to elevate your gifts & gatherings

Grazing platters, otherwise known as cheese platters make a great centrepiece to any dinner party, or even as an individual snack. A variety of cheese types with different textures are usually used, such as soft and creamy brie, crumbly goat cheese, and firm gouda, to name a few. 

They often have sweet and savoury accompaniments to complement the cheeses, which can range from strawberries, crackers, chocolates, etc.

Did you know: Cheese platters are a little different from charcuterie boards, which are prepared with cold cut meat products, and accompaniments like crunchy vegetables. 

The nationwide lockdowns have caused a boom in Instagram businesses selling hand-curated cheese platters, likely due to the low barrier of entry to start this business. So, here’s a non-exhaustive list highlighting brands that are selling grazing platters online and how to order them.

Klang Valley

1. 3 little chef

3 little chef was started by siblings whose family business in KL and Johor was badly hit during the first MCO. Attempting to venture out on their own, the siblings first made and sold out over 800 mooncake gift sets during the Mid-Autumn Festival this year.

Realising their satisfaction in sending gifts to customers and gaining newfound confidence to run a home business, their 3 little chef Instagram store continued creating gift boxes for various Malaysian occasions and events. They include full-moon celebrations, Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, and platters for Halloween, and Christmas.

Other than just cheese platters (RM70-RM450), 3 little chef also sells meat platters (RM205), desserts platters (RM65), and taco platters.

Cheese and Fruit platters by Bon Bon Box KL are priced between RM150 and RM249.

The business offers various sizes of platters from personal sets to medium and large options. Bon Bon Box KL also has seasonal floral gift crates with wine and cheese platters, along with wine bouquets.

5. D’Artisan Handmade Cheese

Dexter began a hobby in cheese making 2 years prior to starting his home business in May 2020 called D’Artisan Handmade Cheese

Thus, all cheeses in D’Artisan Handmade Cheese’s platters are handmade by the entrepreneur. Prices for the platters range from RM120-RM400, and its smallest set can feed 1-2 pax, or while its largest serves 6-10 pax.
