Cheese May 16, 2012

This month we celebrated food that included the magic ingredient – cheese! Andrew hosted the dinner on 14th May, and along with Laura, provided the food for the night.



To start off the Cheese Fest, Andrew had made some parmesan and mustard grissini, and also some baked “Camembert” with crusty bread and cranberry and almond crumbs. Ok, so it was Brie rather than Camembert.



Andrew then cooked ricotta gnocchi with prosciutto and spinach, and Laura served a pear, rocket, walnut and parmesan salad to go with it.



For dessert, Laura served both pecan caramel creams with goats cheese and Romanian cheesecake (Prajitura cu branza).
