Gorgonzola Dolce and Stilton - what kind of bread?

I was thinking of bringing a cheese platter to a potluck this Friday. I can get a wedge of good Stilton and a tub of Gorgonzola Dolce from my local high-end market. But, what kind of bread do you think would pair well? It would have to be something you could pick up at a market or bakery - no time to bake anything myself. And any other accompaniments you think would be good?

Ripe, crisp pears and tart apples along with some Carr's Water Biscuits.

Strange "bread" suggestions thus far.

Personally, I'd go for something with some nuts and fruit in it, but optimally, nothing overly sweet. (Not a cinnamon raisin, but more like a walnut raisin.) I think it helps cut some of the stronger flavors in gorgonzola and stilton, while also complimenting them.

On campus, so no booze. But that was my first thought as well!

Bath Oliver's are perfect with Stilton. Gorgonzola requires something saltier. I don't think bread really works with either but , if forced to choose, I'd go for sourdough.

Another vote for an authentic fresh baked sourdough as well.

I ran oiut of time, and they were out of everything. I just bought a package of those little whole wheat toasts. Those worked fine. As it went not to many people took any, so I have half a tub of it left.

I've yet to find any cheese or meat that a good crusty sourdough doesn't complement well.
