Nut Crusted Cheese Log

Prep time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 1 hr
Serves 8 – 12 guests

What you’ll need…

250 g cream cheese

150g Castello Double Cream Brie

2 tablespoons port, brandy or sherry

2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes

1/2 cup finely chopped mixed soft herbs (such as parsley, chives and basil)

1/3 cup finely chopped SUNBEAM pistachios, diced

1/3 cup SUNBEAM macadamia, diced


Let the cheeses soften on your bench while you dice nuts and herbs. Whip the cheeses with liquor to combine until smooth.

Mix chilli with herbs and nuts, then sprinkle onto a 30cm piece of plastic wrap, leaving a 2cm border.

Spoon cheese along one end of herbs. Lift wrap and roll cheese away from you into a log, pressing gently to coat well in herbs, shape the mixture into a log, then wrap and refrigerate for about an hour, until the mixture is firm. (NOTE: Can be made up to 2 days ahead of time)

Serve with your favourite crackers.
