150 g Prosciutto Di Parma from Luc’s European Meats
250g of Three Brothers Cheese from Janice Beaton Fine Cheeses

       1. Slice these cute cukes into 16-20 slices and arrange them on a plate or serving tray.                We cut ours into heart shapes to make them festive.

  1. The raisins, onions and apples in the Apple Chutney from Innisfail Growers add a bit of brightness and bring the whole thing together.

           For the final touch, dollop each masterpiece with a ½  teaspoon of apple chutney.

Wine Pairings
And because a romantic meal isn’t complete without some libations, we checked in with J. Webb Market Wines for a perfect pairing. They recommended their Bistrologie Blanc blend. It mixes Sauvignon, Chenin and Colombard grapes for a sharp, but fruity addition that pairs well with these appetizers.
