The basis for modern cheese platter is a variety of cheeses (Oldenburger Edam, Gouda and Emmental) in petit four size, which can be garnished with different toppings such as nuts, cream or died fruits and consumed in single bite.
A variety of creative and unusual dips is a great enhancement: sweet olive mustard, spicy green tomato salsa or smooth date honey with whole dates.
Heat the olive oil in a pot, add the garlic, onion and chili and saute. Then add two thirds of the tomato, cover and let simmer for about 30 minutes at medium heat. Add the honey, coriander, caraway seed, salt and pepper and cook for about another five minutes. Remove the pot from the stove, add the rest of the tomato and let cool.
