Cheese: Week Twelve

Our friends Jeri and Jason hosted cheese night this week, and they spoiled and surprised us. Check out this menu: Cocktails: Lemongrass mojitos Dinner: Steak, salad and green beans all infused with aromatic ginger and soy Dessert: Four. FOUR desserts. Three of which were cheese (surprise!) We had lemon baked ricotta, sticky toffee cheese and a yogurt/neufchatel blend with mango. In addition to those, Jeri made cheerful little pot de cremes. It was a dessert smorgasbord, and at one point we all pushed ourselves away from the table for a breather. The lemon ricotta looked like a cheese cake, but was less sweet and tangy from the lemon. The sticky toffee cheese was so unique, I'm having trouble coming up with a way to describe it. Kind of like a sweet, mild cheddar with dried fruit. A bit gritty, and good. Dessert cheeses were totally unexpected, and it was a lot of fun to walk away from the evening having tried so many new things. That's what this whole year of cheese thing is about. Thanks Jeri and Jason!

I just love fruit cheeses, something so decandent about them. A few years ago, our local cheese factory made chocolate chip cheese, but for some reason they stopped. Everytime I drive past their building, my mind goes back to the happy times I had sharing the cheese with my friends. I was just a great way to bring people together and relax:):):)

Thank you for sharing…

Sticky toffee cheese sounds absolutely incredible! I have seen a truffle cheddar at our food co-op, but I've never tried it before. Perhaps I will try next time!

Lemon ricotta, that sounds delicious! Especially with fresh berries.
