The Cheese, Apples, & Honey Board

Rosh Hashanah calls for dipping apples in honey, to signify a sweet new year. The Murray's take on this tradition is to reach for apples, honey, and cheese, since it pairs so beautifully with both. That's the inspiration for this gorgeous savory-sweet board. The cheeses offer a range of flavors—grassy Pyrenees Brebis, bright Sunny Ridge, creamy Roquefort, luxurious Fromager d'Affinois, and tangy Valençay. Two types of honey add a variety of textures and multi-dimensional sweetness, and everything's rounded out with nuts, jam, crackers, and the apples of your choice. Shanah tovah to you and yours!
