Fromage Fort

Monday, April 7, 2014



Crikey, fancy a brilliant solution to all the unfinished cheese bits you have laying around your fridge? Make fromage font aka fragrant cheese dip spread with a hint of wine, garlic, chives and cream cheese. We made it last night using a few of our soft stinky cheese leftovers and some aged Gouda, and I decided that leaving bits and bobs of cheese behind will become a thing in our home, so we have fromage fort to look forward to every couple of weeks. (Here is the recipe).

What cheeses do you like best? Lately I am crazy for all kinds of soft goat cheeses. I can’t get enough of them and Manchego is my other favourite. Yours? xo

P.S: Goat cheese grape balls.
P.P.S: Plus, baked Brie bites.

I'm such cheese person and sometime I daydream about eating brie and bread every single day for a week. I'm saving this for later.

Unfinished cheese bits - pffft, not ever happening in my 'fridge. I'd still love to make this with fresh cheese - it sounds marvelous.

Oh goat cheese is my current favourite as well. Living in Switzerland we are exposed to a lot of cheese (from age fondue and raclette are my go to meals in winter). I like the hard cheeses like ementaler, gruyere, appenzeller, but also the soft ones. I need to try the fromage font recipe.

That looks heavenly! My favourite cheeses are soft goat's cheese too (especially drizzled with some honey) and cheddar with stilton in it. Oh, and I love recipes that include ricotta :-)

Mmmm, cheese! My favourite is smoked anything. There's a bavarian one in particular that I love. I am also a big fan of creamy cheeses like brie and Camembert.

Oh boy, Steph....I love bavarian smoked cheese. I had one not long ago on a dinner party. I think, it was called rauchkase. Delicious!

Diana Mieczan said...

Yum, Katie:)

Diana Mieczan said...

So with you on that, Lyddie:)
