Celebrate autumn with this beautiful cheeseboard. The cheese rinds give splashes of fall colors, and a mix of fruits, meats, olives and nuts balance the bold cheese flavors.
- Arrange cheeses on serving board. Spoon rillete and cornichons into small bowls; place on the board. Fill in board with salami, Kalamata and green olives, breadsticks, prosciutto, assorted dried fruits, bay leaves, almonds, pear slices and additional cornichons. Serve with crackers.
A rillete is meat dish similar to a pate; it’s commonly used as a spread on toasted breads.
When serving cheeses with bold, rich flavors refresh taste buds with sweet fresh and dried fruits, nuts or sour gerkins. The simple flavors won’t compete with the cheeses.
