I've made this a few times - big hit:Salmon-Wrapped Cheese Mold (D, KLP, TNT)
Source: "Pictures from Father's House, Food from Mother's House, the Dishes of Holidays," by Tova Aran (I swear, this is the name of the book - as you know, daddy takes pictures while mommy makes food)
Serves: 8-12 as a buffet dish
7-8 large slices of smoked salmon (I had 200g pack and it was barely enough; next time I would definitely use more)
250g/8 oz. cream cheese 30% (I used Philadelphia)
250g/8 oz. cream cheese 9%
250g/8 oz. cream cheese 5%
200g/7 oz. blue cheese crumbled
250ml/8 fl. oz) whipping cream
14g/1/2 oz. gelatin
1/4 cup hot water
2 tbsp. chopped chives
1 tbsp. onion chopped; I used the whole onion
100g walnuts chopped
2 tbsp. chopped dill
Optional: some green olives chopped
Cover the bottom and sides of a mold with the salmon slices. I used for this a small mold that looks like a small Kugelhopf pan and as I said, the salmon was not enough. I guess that it would take at least 10 oz. or 300g to coat well the sides.
Cream together cheeses, add cream and stir until blended very well.
Melt gelatin in hot water and mix with cheese mixture. Add other ingredients and stir very well.
Pour into mold, cover with salmon slices, cover and chill for a few hours.
Remove from mold, and decorate with mint leaves.
I also like the ubiquitous lettuce/endive salad with blue cheese and nuts
