Hungry for More: Make a fancy cheese plate

When you have a gathering of family and friends, sometimes you want to do something a little different than smoked weenies in barbecue sauce.

“Hungry for More” host Jim Manney takes us back to Maxwell’s with chef Mike Wald, where they show us how to turn a simple cheese plate into culinary perfection.

With everyday items such as olives, pecans, honey, fruit and juice, you just need a few extra ingredients to make the perfect toppings for your cheese and crackers.

It’s easy to make your cheese plate interesting with the addition of a star fruit and fun cheeses.

And if you’re not a cheese connoisseur, don’t worry, the usual cheeses you’ve grown up with will work just fine.
