CHIC EATS: AN AUTUMN CHEESE PLATE

There's a cheese plate for every season... And this is mine for this fall! My new obsession this time? Figs! As you might remember from my fall cocktail post, figs have been the most perfect accent to any autumn dish or drink. Obviously I am not the first one to figure this out but I am glad I finally got with it. And for a cheese plate it's a wonderful addition due to it's natural sweetness. I have always seen lots of fig based spreads in the cheese section of the market and so adding some figs made sense. As for the cheeses, a good cheese plate always has about three or more different cheeses that vary in firmness, taste and texture. I usually tend to always do a manchego and brie since those are my favorites, and then pick something new each time for the third cheese. At the store I found a very vibrant, orange colored, crumbly hard cheese called mimolette that was so perfectly fall. The mimolette cheese worked wonderfully with the brie and manchego and looked beautifully when placed with everything else on the plate. In addition to the cheese I added raw honeycomb as always, red grapes for the color and sweetness, and the figs of course to just nail the fall theme exactly. I used little French bread slices that I found pre-sliced at the grocery store and added the cranberry crackers, perfectly in sync with the autumn theme. I've made a little list with some links below to clarify everything I used! Enjoy!
