iGourmet:
Heart-Shaped Wensleydale With Cranberries

Start the evening with a heart of Wensleydale cheese. The outside is enrobed in burgundy wax; after you peel back the wax, the inside of this classic cheese from England’s Yorkshire countryside is studded with burgundy cranberries. (The second photo shows a wedge from a regular round of cranberry Wensleydale.) Enjoy it with slices of French baguette and a glass of Champagne. Roses are not included, but adding your own to the cheese plate makes a nice presentation! Purchase on iGourmet.com

Gourmet Food Store:
Heart-Shaped Brillat Savarin

The 18th century writer Brillat-Savarin is one of France’s most renowned gourmets. This sumptuous triple-creme, made from cow’s milk, enriched with cream, is one of the most rich and buttery of all cheeses. It was created by cheese master Henri Androuet in Normandy in the 1930s, and named in honor of Brillat-Savarin. Perfect for dessert with fruit, it can be spread on savory or sweet crackers (like graham or wheatmeal), or even chocolate cookies.
