Expert Tips

Instead of crackers, assorted raw vegetables such as Belgian endive, cherry tomatoes and snap pea pods.

Because of the richness of the cheeses, the dip may start to separate, and little puddles could appear on the surface. You'll need to stir the dip occasionally, and it will look as good as new.

Asiago is a semifirm Italian cheese with a rich, nutty flavor. It's made from whole or part-skim milk and comes in small wheels with glossy rinds. You can purchase it in wrapped precut wedges or preshredded.
