Ultimate Cheese Platter

People ask me all the time which is my favorite and I don't have an answer for the pesto I like best. All I can tell you is that each pesto is different in its own way. I do however like to eat certain ones just out of the jar.

You can do this with either Roasted Red Pepper Pesto or Artichoke. Personally, I love the Red Pepper best with a great cheese tray.

Here are the cheeses I pair with this pesto. Gorgonzola Dolce, Camembert or Brie, Goat Cheese or Humboldt Fog, Farm House Cheddar.

You must have a sour apple Granny Smith or a Korean Pear. This pear has the consistency of of an apple but tastes like a cantaloupe or honey dew melon.

Prosciutto Ham, a must and great crusty bread. Don't forget your wine; Pinot Noir, is my recommendation.
