    How to Create a Harvest Cheese Board

    With (Canadian) Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I wanted to share some of my ideas for creating a harvest-themed cheese board. First, let’s break it down. Cheese boards can be made up of a variety of components, but every great cheese board contains the following five things: Great cheese(s)! Fresh bread and/or crackers Honey and/or other spread/preserve Fresh and/or dried fruit Other accompaniments (options include cured meats, olives, nuts/seeds, chocolate, etc.) Okay, but where to begin? It can seem a little overwhelming, but in my mind, there are two good places to start. Either begin with a theme you wish to use as inspiration for your board, or start with the cheese…

    Chocolate, Brie, & Basil Panini Bites

    Champfleury Toast

    Ah, Champfleury. I mean, this is just melted cheese on toast – how can you go wrong? This post is more so an homage to Champfleury than it is a “recipe”, because it’s such a simple way of eating it. I simply sliced some of the cheese, smeared it onto some baguette, and placed it under the broiler until the cheese melted. Then I drizzled it with some delicious local honey, and voilĂ . But Champfleury deserves more attention than a mere blurb about how to eat it (and by the way, you can totally just eat this cheese straight from the package without any melting or honey and it’s still…
