Cheese Christmas Log

Everyone knows the traditional Christmas log that we serve for dessert, it's super pretty and festive. I was inspired by this idea to create a Festive Cheese Log that can be served as an aperitif or in a buffet accompanied by slices of bread or crackers.

This Christmas Cheese Log is an explosion of flavors. The cheese mixture is fill with a multitude of condiments like artichokes, olives, sundried tomatoes and grilled peppers which makes each bite different, but just as delicious.

You can prepare the cheese log up to 4 days in advance, simply omit the garniture on top just add it at the last minute.
