I have to confess, I always thought Blue cheese was actually blue till I started blogging and surfing food blogs. I wouldn’t have been adventurous enough to buy a Blue cheese block (for quite a handsome price) if I wasn’t inspired by the fabulous recipes showcased on foodblogs!
I googled for blue cheese recipes to do justice to the price I paid for the exotic (yes here it is exotic) cheese and I found this at The Kitchn amongst many wonderful ones! Pear and Blue cheese crostata!
Followed the recipe to the last word and was rewarded with a flavorful dessert with the exotic cheese! A bit sharp to taste but this cheese blends well with the other flavors in the crostata. A wonderful celebration for the holidays!
