  • Goat cheese roll with flowers and herbs*
  • Different kinds of crackers
  • Edamame dip
  • Assorted nuts

how to make it

Start with a large board from your collection. Pick a nice spot for the cake made of four layers of cheeses.

Like a true pastry chef, finish the cheese stacj with edible flowers, such as violets and rose petals.  Around this, you build out with all the other goodies.

Place the crackers against the tapas dishes with edamame dip and black sesame seeds so they don't slip. Around the edge of the shelf put down items that are easy to grab: dates, oranges, peppers.

More towards the middle the items that are a bit looser like the nuts, dates and herbs like sage, thyme and dill.

Don't forget the spoons, knives and small plates. Bon appétit!
