In a small saucepan over medium heat, gently warm the olive oil with the onion, hazelnuts, olives and garlic. Keep the mixture hot but not simmering, and cook until the onions are softened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour the mixture into a preheated Thermos.

When ready to serve, place the blue cheese in the center of an attractive platter, then pour the warm oil mixture over the cheese. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste. Arrange the baguette rounds and the grapes along side on a separate platter and serve with the spread.
