  • 12 crackers
  • 1 starfruit
  • 1 orange
  • 8 chunks of papayas (about ½ fruit)
  • 8 slices of watermelons
  • 100 ml nuts, e.g. toasted almonds, pecan nuts, and cashew nuts
  • 50 ml coconut flakes
  • 1 bottle of cold crémant


1. Cut fruits into pieces according to your preference.

2. Arrange the cream cheese ring at the centre of a platter.

3. Place fruits, crackers, nuts, and coconut flakes around the cheese.

4. Serve with a glass of crémant and enjoy.


Make sure the papaya and watermelon chunks are bite-sized to make them easier to eat with the cheese and crackers. Slice star fruit and orange into round pieces to make them look extra pretty and make them easy to eat, too. You can consider removing the peel of the orange even though it looks beautiful on the plate with the peel on.


You can let the cream cheese sit at room temperature for a bit before serving. It gets creamier and softer as it sits, and this will also make it easier to spread on the crackers.


Only assemble the platter just before serving. This ensures the fruits and crackers remain fresh and crisp, avoiding the crackers going soggy because of the fruit juices.
