A few notes on choosing ingredients: Pick two or three each of your meats and cheeses. Try tot find contrasting flavors or textures. Here we have a spicy pepperoni with an uncured prosciutto which offers two different flavor profiles and two different textures. For the cheeses, we picked a soft cheese with our Gorgonzola (Italian Blue Cheese), and a firm cheese, Comte (similar to a Gruyere, or a fine Swiss cheese).
Once you've established your meats & cheese, choose a cracker like these multigrain water crackers that will stand up to the powerful flavors of the meat & cheeses. Serve these along side something sweet, like our dates, and something savory or acidic, like our cherry tomatoes. For bonus points, add a tasty mustard, hummus, or other spread.
- Comte (firm cheese)
- Gorgonzola (soft cheese)
- Cubed Merlot Bellavitano (wildcard addition)
- Pepperoni, large slices
- Dates (something sweet)
- Cherry Tomatoes (something acidic)
- Multi-grain crackers
Directions: Arrange your cheese wedges on your cheese board first. Roll your prosciutto horizontally from one end to create prosciutto rosettes, and stage these next on your board. Take slices of pepperoni and pinch in the middle, pushes the edges upward to create a little fan shape. Add these to your board. Line crackers neatly on one side, and fill in the remaining spaces with your sweet and savory fruit & vegetable choices. Consider serving with a spread such as this sweet & tangy mustard.
