Pear and Blue Cheese Crostata

December 27, 2009 at 7:00 am 9 comments

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!

    First time on your site and I loved the spread you have. Kung-Pao had only heard about it but never knew it was simple to make if planned. Btw, I a big fan of Blue Cheese dip. Will drop in more often.

    Happy Blogging Madhuli!!
