Burnt Movie Night Cheese Tray

 This cheese tray is very easy to make and perfect for a stay at home movie night. Thanks Castello USA for sponsoring this post! As always all opinions are mine alone.


I usually don’t go to the movies to see every new movie that is released. But when there is a movie I would like to see, I can get very excited.

And nowadays, you don’t even need to go to the movie theater to see the newest movie. With so many sites online, you can pay and watch a movie in the comfort of your home. This is what we are planning to do tonight.


Yesterday was the premiere of Bradley Cooper’s new movie “Burnt”. And tonight we are going to watch it.

I like Bradley Cooper’s movies and I can’t wait to see this one.

Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is a Chef who destroyed his career with drugs and diva behavior. He cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars. Does it sound like a movie you’d like to see?

I learned about the movie on Castello’s Facebook page. Then when I visited Castello’s page I was also amazed by the amazing recipes inspired by Burnt.


Since it will be at home movie night, we are going to need some food or at least snacks, right?

I’m very thankful to Castello for sponsoring this post! Their amazing good quality cheeses are a staple in my cooking. Castello offers a range of creatively crafted cheeses, including Havartis, blues and soft cheeses.

Castello is running a sweepstakes from now through November 20, where you can win prizes inspired by the film.

Make sure you #UnlockYourChef  by visiting the Castello’s website to participate in the sweepstakes for a chance to win prizes like a private cooking classes for two and a year’s worth of Castello cheese!

And because my left hand is still injured, I still can’t do any serious cooking.

But I can make a nice cheese tray. I’m using Castello’s Havarti Dill And Havarti Jalapeno in the tray and also some almonds, dried cranberries, crackers, strawberries and orange wedges. Pretty easy and great for a movie night snack. Use your favorite fruits and nuts. Perfect for a glass of wine and to enjoy during a movie night at home.

Cheese trays are so easy to make and versatile. Hope you like this one.

And good luck if you decide to participate in the sweepstakes.
