Roasting grapes brings out their intense sweetness; an earthy, creamy cheese counterbalances it.

1 cup seedless red grapes
1 cup seedless green grapes
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3-oz. wedge of ripe triple-cream cheese, such as Cowgirl Creamery's Red Hawk*
Sliced baguette, toasted
Preheat oven to 425°. Toss grapes with rosemary, oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
Spread grapes on a baking sheet and roast 10 minutes. Turn over with a spatula and roast until very tender and slightly more shriveled, about 7 minutes more. Serve on a platter with cheese and toasts.
