A Charcuterie Board is a classic grazing dish for any party, but this Chinese New Year version injects a whole lot of fun and Asian character into a familiar option. Impress your guests with a platter filled with bak kwa (best enjoyed with Five Spice Apple Compote), mixed nuts, Mandarin oranges as well as keropok and other crackers, paired with sambal or better yet, a unique Salted Egg Aioli.

Instructions

  1. Make apple compote

    • Make the apple compote by combining all the ingredients in a pot, and simmering until the apples are tender. 
    • Peeled apples will result in something more like applesauce, while leaving the skin on will give you a compote with more texture. Allow to cool.

  2. Make salted aioli
