Recipe idea of the week is this delicious Gorgonzola Antipasto Platter – perfect for parties and when you have people round.
100g Gorgonzola piccante, sliced
100g Gorgonzola dolce, sliced
100g West Country Farmhouse Cheddar, sliced
100g Parmigiano Reggiano, chunked
Black pepper Crackers
Date and Apple Chutney:
1 allspice berry
100ml cider vinegar
300g bramley apples, chopped
50g dates, chopped (preferably fresh)
50g dark brown sugar
-Place all ingredients for the chutney in a heavy based saucepan, stir and bring to the boil.
-Simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally until nearly all the liquid has reduced
-Cool and chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving as part of a Gorgonzola and PDO cheese board
Tip: This is a great party platter, try serving with a garden salad. The chutney can also be made a couple of days in advance
