  • 6 ounces Roth Cheese Original Grand Cru sliced
  • 6 ounces Roth Cheese Prairie Sunset sliced
  • 3 cups grapes
  • 1 carrot sliced
  • 1 apple sliced
  • 1/3 cup Marcona almonds
  • 1/3 cup raw pecans
  • 1/4 cup fig jam
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 sprigs Rosemary for garnish
  • 4 ounces package rosemary artisan crackers
  • 4 ounces package toasted crisps


  • Arrange the sliced cheese around the board keeping space between them.
  • Add in small pinch bowls or dishes to be filled with jam, honey and nuts.
  • Place the fruits and vegetables around the cheese and pinch bowls layering them so they're easy to remove from one another.
  • Place the crackers around the fruits and vegetables, stacking them high or fanning them out. There may be extra depending on the size of your board.
  • Fill in the gaps with the Marcona almonds, pecans and any other accompaniments you'd like to add. Garnish with greens. Enjoy!


Storage: Store any of the leftovers items separately to preserve freshness and texture.
To store cheese, place wax paper around it and then cover the wax paper with plastic wrap. I would not recommend freezing leftover cheese because it breaks down the protein and makes it more crumbly. I would also not recommend vacuum sealing any leftovers since it may create mold if not done properly.
