This dashing holiday Comté wreath revels in good tidings and cheer! With a traditional mix of spices and flavors, it will definitely delight Santa or Scrooge. Loads of fresh Comté complimented by figs, elderberries and dried cranberries. Accented by cinnamon sticks, gingerbread cookies, fresh sage, bay leaves, marjoram and, of course, firesticks!
The holidays may feel a little bit different this year but I hope you find some holiday cheer wherever you can. This wreath celebrates the tastes of the season, with dried apricots, goose (or golden) berries, golden raisins, elderberries and figs. Along with embellished accents of edible herbs and flowers (fresh sage, bay leaves, marjoram, firesticks, marigold, nasturtium, roses).
Erika, a cheese preacher at @CheeseSexDeath, shared with us this scrumptious masterpiece. This cheese plate was inspired by the flavors of spring: like radishes with butter and fresh goat cheese marinated with rosemary and lemon peel, paired with warm baguette. She also loves complementary pairings of apricots and pistachios, which remind her of when she visited Provence last year.
"I love how those pairings tease out the fruity, nutty flavors in a classic Comté. Love adding a bit of funk to any plate, so I finished it all off with Saint Agur and clover honey. It's a little taste of springtime in France!"
