Tray chic: a few quick cuts turn a sheet of frozen puff pastry into a stylish serving tray. Top with several decorative wedges of cheese or a selection of sliced cheeses cut into various shapes and sizes. Allow 2 to 3 ounces of cheese per person, and serve at room temperature. Add a basket of warm bread and some hot soup, and you're ready for a fun evening with friends.Source unknown
