My husband, Jonathan, and I took a trip to Alaska recently for our friends’ wedding. Apart from the totally amazing setting overlooking the ocean and snow capped mountains in the distance, their wedding food (by Maura’s Cafe) was absolutely delicious. One appetizer stood out to me, so I set out to recreate it: Gorgonzola Grapes. You could make them using any kind of creamy cheese or nuts, but I used gorgonzola and pecans, which really gave them a kick. Just put a dab of creamy cheese in your palm with the grape and roll it around until the cheese coats it. Then roll the whole thing in chopped nuts and stick a toothpick in it. These are a perfect bite-sized snack with cocktails!
