Adapted from a recipe from Tyler Florence. This is a sophisticated-looking appetizer just bursting with flavor. It's a bit time consuming to make, but worth it. When I made it, I ran out of ground nuts, yet still had cheese left over. I chopped up a few grapes, and sprinkled some chopped walnut pieces in the cheese and mixed it up for a nice bleu cheese spread, as a bonus. Prep and cook time includes chilling time.
