Get into the spirit of Halloween with a take on the cheese platter your guests will remember for an eternity. It’s not enough to wrap the house in spider webs and put out a bowl of treats — this year we’re taking our Halloween game to new heights with a cheese graveyard that is hauntingly beautiful.
We picked our Marble and Gold Tray as a serving vehicle, but you can also use something much bigger. We’ve used harder cheeses like Manchego and Gruyere, cut them in half and stood them up to look like gravestones. The engravings are “painted” on with Balsamic Vinegar. Stacks of bread and crackers, along with cut fruit and berries fill in the landscaping, and the whole scene is sprinkled with crushed green Snap Pea Crisps to give it a fungus-y feel.
The “dirt” is made from crushed Blue Corn Tortilla Chips (available in stores), and split figs make a fiendish finishing touch. Pair with our Blood Orange Cocktail for a grown up Halloween that’s so much more than tricks and treats. Start here and create your own. You’re only limited by your imagination.
