The deliciousness of cream cheese and red velvet combined is almost too much to bear. Almost. This stacked recipe is something of a labour of love, with Brown-Eyed Baker suggesting, "it helps to spread the work out over a couple of days" but the results certainly look worth the effort.

Some time ago it seems America got hold of the French recipe for Mornay sauce and sexed it up like only America can - With beer.

A favourite in Kentucky, it's used as a dip for the likes of pretzels, crudites and crackers. The Beeroness has a simple, 'foolproof' version of the dish while Food Wishes goes for the whole shebang, including garlic, Tabasco sauce and flat beer. The blog does admit, however, that "very few love Kentucky Beer Cheese at first bite."

THE PERFECT CHEESEBOARD

Believe it or not, there's an art to compiling the perfect cheeseboard. There are rules too, such as keeping the cheese at room temperature for at least an hour before serving. And, as cheese supremo Jacquelyn Clark points out, it's best to "keep the super pungent cheeses on a plate by themselves" to prevent them from overpowering the milder cheeses.
