Smoked Oyster Cheese Roll

OSmoked Oyster Dip

This Smoked Oyster Cheese Roll recipe is quite simply delicious and it looks really fancy even though it is rather simple to make! The smokey flavor of the oysters balances the rich creaminess of the cheese perfectly, while the nuts add a hint of sweetness and lends a nice crunchy finish. Serve with some crackers and a nice white wine or champagne alongside this wonderful appetiser and you have a winner!

This recipe is from one of my best friends Monica, who is quite possibly the best hostess I know. She makes entertaining appear so effortless and all of her friends always marvel at her grace and charm...the true Southern Belle (even if she wasn't born in the south). She managed to wheedle this recipe out of a chef at a wine tasting in Sanoma Valley. Monica has graciously passed the recipe on to me and I use it often as a quick and easy go-to appetiser to wow my guests.
