Flatbread Crackers for a Perfect Cheese Board

However you plan to celebrate your Valentine’s Day, a cheese board and some fun heart shaped flatbread crackers make a fun addition whether you plan to feed two or 20.

Because I’m planning a cheese board for especially for Valentine’s Day, chocolate is a must. Cheese, fruit, chocolate, and bread, and I don’t think I’m even going to need a meal.

Along with the chocolate covered berries and almonds I chose three of my favorite cheeses – blue, aged Havarti, and a classic blue brie (heavenly) all from Castello.

Where there is cheese, so must there also be bread, and I made fun heart shaped flatbread crackers to pair.



Not to forget the wine, of course a cheese board needs just the right wine. I am firmly in the white category, but Ian is a reds only guy. With our cheese board we chose a Folie a Deux Chardonnay, Cab, and Zinfandel. Something for everyone.
