Sharing is caring!

The holidays are officially here, and it is time to start planning holiday parties, as well as dinners.  While I am not big on serving a huge appetizer spread before a meal, I do like to serve a nibble along with a glass of champagne.  It is a great way to begin the evening while last-minute preparations are taking place, before sitting down to eat.  My usual go to for the said nibbles is a simple but elegant Perfect Cheese Board with Truffle Honey.

Truffle Honey is like liquid gold around our house and one of Lenny’s favorite things to devour.  The honey is sweet while be slightly earthy or as we like to say intoxicating.  It is unique and should be experienced by all.  I like to serve it along side a pungent French blue cheese or even a creamy triple cream cheese, or a salty pecorino.  I lay a piece of the cheese on a slice of baguette, and top with a drizzle of the honey.  Heavenly.

When making a Perfect Cheese Board with Truffle Honey, I keep the rest of the ingredients simple, as I do not want to take away from the star of the show.  I normally add some dried as well as fresh fruit, depending on what is in season as well as nuts, and sliced of baguette.  I do not use flavored crackers as I don’t want flavors to take away from the honey or the cheese.

Some general ideas are:

Serving 2 – 4 people

Truffle Honeya must to make this Cheese Board elegant and holiday festive

Cheese – I select 2 to 3 kinds of cheese, which will complement each other, and about 1/4 each, a little more or a little less.  For this cheese board, I used a French Chaumes and D’auvergne Blue.  If you are not sure, then ask your cheesemonger what will go well with the Truffle honey.  Be sure to take the cheese out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving, to warm the cheese up, and to open up the flavors.

Baguette – 1 baguette thinly sliced.  I prefer not to toast the bread, but feel free if you like a little crunch.

Fruit – during the winter months I like to use slices of fresh pear, along with dried apple rings (try to find ones that are dried without sugar).

Nuts – walnuts and pecans go really well with the truffled honey as well as the cheeses mentioned above.

Serve with a glass of champagne.

One of my favorite ways to have dinner is with a nice glass of wine and a charcuterie board…so relaxing ! So I have a recipe for an Organ Blue Cheesecake that I think maybe truffle honey would go very nicely with…I’m going to try it.

We LOVE snacky food dinners too Joanne! And that Oregon Blue Cheesecake sounds amazing as well as perfect for this truffle honey. How do we get the recipe?

Hi Nora - we don't have any other recipes using honey butter; but it goes really well with all baked goods too. Especially with cornbread and bowl of chili.
