Today we’re celebrating one of the world’s most beloved delicacies: cheese. With hundreds of different varieties to sample and an endless number of ways to incorporate them into your kitchen creations, there’s no limit to what you can do. You may opt for a traditional Italian mozzarella di bufala, or a wheel of the stinkiest camembert you can get your hands on. Or maybe you’d prefer to keep it simple with a classic cheddar. Whatever cheese you choose to feature, share your culinary masterpiece with us by adding the MONtag #cheese.

As you compose your shot, take a cue from the food photography professionals and pay special attention to your background, as it can do wonders for setting the mood in your image. If you’re preparing a colorful caprese salad, lay out a bright tablecloth to complement the colors. Or, if you’re slicing up some roquefort, lay it across a rustic wooden cutting board next to a glass of red wine. These seemingly small elements can make the difference between a good shot and a great shot. Once your creation is camera-ready, show it off by tagging it with #cheese for the rest of the world to enjoy.
