Make a ho-hum cheese tray spectacular with a few unexpected additions. One large wedge of cheese looks like you splurged, but it's actually less expensive than offering several smaller choices.
Arrange all ingredients on a large serving platter or cutting board.
Party Tip: Fuyu persimmons, which are a beautiful red-orange fruit, are available in October through February. Shaped like a tomato, they have a super-sweet melon-like flavor. Fuyus should be eaten while still firm and crisp versus the Hachiya, another type that should be enjoyed when the fruit is very soft.
Your basic cheese tray but the persimmons add a nice twist; I paired with fontina and gouda - 8 oz is not enough, I'd get a larger wedge.
