How To Create a Grazing Platter With a Difference
Grazing platters are the latest food trend for parties, picnics, catch-ups and even weddings. Gathering food for a platter that is not only yummy but pleasing to the eye is easy with our 3 simple steps.
Step 1 – Start with a unique cheese
Rather than buying generic cheese straight from the supermarket, make your own incorporating dried fruit. You could make something like a fruit and nut cheese log with dried mango instead of the traditional apricot for something different but still incorporating that slightly sweet taste mixed with savoury.
Step 2 – Fruit
Dried fruit products are a fantastic addition to any grazing platter. Or, if you’re looking to enjoy a treat after dinner with coffee, a Sweeter fix product would be best.
Pending what cheeses you have on your platter, our recommendations for fruits to add include;
- Dried Pear
- Dried Fig
- Dried Green Apple
- Dried Red Apple
- Dried Strawberry
- Dried Pineapple
Step 3 – Crackers and meat
A simple cracker works well on any grazing platter, whether you like a water cracker or some with a hint of cracked pepper.
But for a delicious treat for your tastebuds try dried fig, a blue cheese and salami together. They are fantastic combination and perfect addition to your grazing platter.
An extra tip – The best thing about the dried fruits is that they are also perfect to add to your champagne, cocktails or mocktails. The dried strawberries in particular are perfect for drinks while you are also enjoying cheese and nibbles.
