Sweet with honey and salty, gorgonzola cheese is nestled into phyllo for a delicious appetizer or addition to your cheese board spread.

With The Oscars approaching, lots of people gather around and share elegant nibbles on this very special night! A very appropriate offering is a delicious cheese board with Castello cheese, plus little bites of delicacies and sipping on really good wine. So today I am sharing with you Gorgonzola Walnut Honey Bites and Folie a Deux Zinfandel, a pairing made in heaven.
These bites are elegant and have a golden touch from the honey. The mild tasting gorgonzola pairs lovely with the zinfandel. If you’re not the biggest fan of blue cheese you will still love these little bites as they are mild, sweet from the honey and salty from the cheese. The little phyllo cups I found at our local deli but you can see what little vessels your local grocer has to offer or this would be delicious on any cracker also.
Castello cheese also have a variety of creatively crafted cheese, so I added their gorgeous camembert and a blue cheese to the cheese board. The freshness of grapes pair lovely with cheese to.
Check out the video below for an easy cheese topper with Sweet and Spicy Carrot Chutney. This would be amazing on Castello’s Brie or Camembert or their Havarti!

Cooking, baking and entertaining have been a lifelong passion for me. I started at a very young age to bake and cook for my family. Even attempting many of Julia Child’s recipes as a young teenager and cooking meals for the family or for company. Now I love entertaining and celebrating the holidays. My husband Ken loves being in the kitchen creating right along with me. Our daughter has been doing cooking classes with me for a number of years and also enjoys everything that the kitchen has to offer.
