I made these little Gorgonzola Walnut Honey Bites with The Oscars in mind. They are elegant and have a golden touch from the honey. The mild tasting gorgonzola pairs lovely with the zinfandel. If you don’t like blue cheese you will still love these little bites as they are mild, sweet from the honey and salty from the cheese. The little phyllo cups I found at our local deli but you can see what little vessels your local grocer has to offer or this would be delicious on any cracker also.
Castello cheese also have a variety of creatively crafted cheese, so I added their gorgeous camembert and a blue cheese to the cheese board. The freshness of grapes pair lovely with cheese to.
Perfectly divine cheese and a great wine sets you off for a fantastic party. A cheeseboard is so easy to put together with a few little helpers like we have for you today.
