The Ultimate Cheeseboard with Onion and Fig Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef - Christmas Special

For any cheese lover, the idea of being able to work your way around a selection of contrasting cheeses is one of the best ways of indulging your passion. When putting together a cheeseboard the aim is for a contrast of textures, tastes and shapes. Mild to strong, rounds and wedges, light against dark, soft and hard – it's about making an aesthetic impact as much as a gastrominoc one. The chutney will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
