Saint-Nectaire with grapes and local honey

Serves 4

300g/10oz Saint-Nectaire cheese
40g/2oz mixed grapes (such as Italian black grapes and fragola)
A drizzle of local honey

This is more a combination of beautiful ingredients than a recipe. Saint-Nectaire is a silky soft, semi-hard cheese from the Auvergne region of France.

To serve, slice the cheese and arrange on plates. Garnish with the grapes – I like to leave the stalks to balance the dish decoratively.

Finally, drizzle over the honey.
