Here's a clever idea for gift giving as well as to make this as part of your table for appetizer: Present this spread in a hollowed out bread loaf for a hostess gift to serve right away. Fill it just before giving it to make sure the loaf don't get soggy. Also you can spoon the spread intoa crock instead of the bread loaf. Present it with toasted baguette slices and apples or pears for slicing.
