Dessert Cheese to Eat in the New Year
Cheese isn’t just a topping that you add on a meal or a savoury bite that you relish in your favourite comfort food. Cheese is, in fact, a decadent food item that can be eaten anytime and with anything, including as a dessert!
This New Year, celebrate the festivities in the comfort of your home and try putting together a variety of sweet dessert cheeses that will make you the star of the party!
Named after the city in the Netherlands, the Aged Gouda is the most consumed cheese in the world. Cheese lovers prefer to have this aged cheese by itself, but it works equally well on a cheeseboard because of its crunchy, crystalline and nutty texture.
As a traditional Italian cheese, Burrata is slightly less popular than mozzarella but is well-known because of its creamy, stringy and soft texture. This party, forget adding cheesecakes on the menu and add slices of tomatoes, fresh herbs or strawberry, peach and blueberries with burrata. The buttery treat after cutting open the cheese will surprise guests for sure!
Danish Blue Cheese
Have you ever tried blue cheese on a dessert platter? Danish Blue Cheese is certainly a taste to be acquired, and while it is not commonly used, it has a flavour profile that pairs well with fruity or white wine. Scoop up a small dollop of honey or with some bites of fruit for a delicious, yummy bite.
Comte is made from unpasteurized cow’s milk and is aged from 4 months to 24 months. It is semi-hard but works well in the kitchen because of its melting point. This cheese works well in a souffle, soups and even works wonders when grated on caramelised bananas. A crowd-pleaser for sure!
Roquefort is aged for nearly five months and is rich, creamy and moist. This blue cheese works well in salads and dressings because of the sharp tangy flavour. Try this slightly salty cheese with some fruit jelly or wine and prepare to be amazed!
