Cheese boards are one of the best meals. Having a spread of delicious cheeses and savory snacks along with crunchy crackers is a perfect simple yet indulgent meal. Whether you’re treating yourself to a cozy meal or are entertaining a crowd, here are some exciting chutney flavors to add to the mix.

Tomato and Chili

This sweet and spicy chutney is a lovely bright addition to lots of dishes. Its sharpness works well with neutral, rich cheeses such as mature cheddar and it brings a delightful zing to your food. 

Caramelized Onion

The sweet, delicate flavor of this popular chutney pairs well with plenty of foods. It’s great with milder cheeses as it’s not too overpowering. Would be perfect with brie or gouda. 

Apple and Pear

This is a very sweet chutney but is super delicious and indulgent. This is the perfect accompaniment to strong, tangy cheeses due to its fresh sweetness. For example, a rich stilton or camembert would work well. 


Figs are known for their delicate flavor so it makes sense that their chutney form will also be delicate and delicious. This is ideal for a rich, creamy cheese such as goat’s cheese or feta.
