Made for your Football Pool win, cheese & fruit platters are a European classic for afternoon coffee or evening dessert & mostly designed by personal preferences plus what fruit looks best at the market. While I didn't include your list of ingredients item-by-item, I captured the heart of the recipe. I used Camembert, a Roquefort mix, Brie & a locally made Icelandic cheese called Gull (largest in the pic). For the fruit components, I used grapes, pears, Clementines & homemade rhubarb jam. I'd bought apples too, but DH ate them prior to service of the platters. I included bacon flavored crackers & melba toast. Sml baguette roll slices were ready to go, but failed to make the platters in my haste to serve them at a family gathering. This combo of flavors is always great & the platters were well-received by our guests. Congrats on your FP win & thx for providing the star of our afternoon coffee. :-)
