4 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
3 TBL  dry sherry
1 TBL  Worcestershire sauce
¾ tsp  curry powder
½ tsp  garlic powder
½ tsp  white pepper
Pinch  cayenne pepper
4 – 6 ounces mango chutney
½ cup   minced green onions
½ cup  finely chopped peanuts

Combine cheeses, sherry, Worcestershire, curry powder, garlic powder, white pepper, and cayenne in a small bowl.  Blend well.  Line a 2 cup bowl with plastic wrap, leaving a 4 inch overhang.  Press cheese mixture into bowl.  Fold plastic overhang over top and cover with another piece of wrap.  Refrigerate at least 4 hours.  (at this point, it may be frozen.)  When ready to serve, unfold plastic wrap and invert onto a serving plate.  Spoon chutney over the top.  Sprinkle with green onions, peanuts, and coconut.  Serve chilled with crackers.
