I’ve been remiss in putting these together but I thought I’d better do one before it becomes manic as the festive season approaches. By all means have the traditional cheeseboard – there’s a reason its traditional – it works! However, a customer surprised me with a suggestion the other day and I tried it and was quite amazed, though thinking it through I shouldn’t have been. I’ll share it with you and urge you to try it when you need a little more than cheese, biscuits, fruit and wine (doesn’t happen often I admit) but don’t want a full meal. Here it is, prepare yourself to be shocked: ripe full flavoured brie with an Eccles Cake. I’m a convert..
