Gorgonzola Dolce and Chocolate Cherry Truffles
Pairing cheese and chocolate will change your life. We are obviously cheese lovers, and who doesn't indulge in a bit of chocolate now and again..but, have you ever tried the two together?
The key is in the quality of the ingredients you use. Ensure both your cheese and chocolate are top-quality artisan ingredients, this will enhance your appreciation for the producers and the flavours.
Our gorgonzola dolce is sweet and buttery, it melts in your mouth. From Novara in Italy, we have been sourcing this cheese for almost 20 years.
Our cherry truffles are made with sweet cherries from Piemonte, coated and dusted in dark chocolate.
The flavours are so powerful from the 2 ingredients, that only a small amount is required. It can be served as a canape or a dessert option.
What I will suggest is – keep it simple! Serve on a charcoal biscuit or our ligurian flatbread.
At room temperature, spead a little of the dolce onto a cracker and place half a cherry truffle on top.
The flavours are sensational!
Our smoked sheep ricotta would be another great alternative.
Wine Pairing: We have been trying these with our latest arrival from Japan - Sake! To add another flavour to the mix, the acidity is sharp and crisp against the soft textures and flavours of the cheese and chocolate.
