About 2 hours before serving, remove the cheeses from the refrigerator, unwrap them, and allow them to come to room temperature.
When ready to serve, arrange the cheeses, pomegranate, figs, and pecans on a cutting board, marble slab, or platter. Include a spreader for each soft cheese and a sharp paring knife or cheese plane for the hard cheese. Serve with baguette rounds, thin slices of dark bread, or crackers, if desired.
