Step 1Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 7 minutes. Set aside.
Step 2Combine the shallot, chives, Gorgonzola, cream cheese and goat cheese in a bowl. (This can be done a few days ahead and refrigerated.)
Step 3To serve, transfer the mixture to a shallow 2-cup capacity bowl; sprinkle with the walnuts and parsley. Serve with crackers, toasts, celery sticks, endive leaves, wedges of apples or pears (quickly dipped in water and lemon juice to keep them from turning brown).
