Fall is Here!

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

Fall has finally arrived and it is one of our favorite times of the year! Fall gives us so many great ingredients that work with our Authentic French Cheeses from apples to pears to cinnamon and nutmeg to hearty root vegetables. These great ingredients also allow for great meals. We love a hearty soup or stew as well fun apple and pumpkin dishes. For now let’s keep it simple. Fall fruits like apples, grapes, pears and cranberries pair great with our French Cheeses. Try apples with our Brie. Cranberries with our Goat and grapes with our Blue!

A Twist on a Classic: Guacamole

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Avocados have grown immensely in popularity over the past couple of years. They are flavorful, full of nutrients and versatile, which makes them extremely appealing to people. As mentioned, avocados are extremely versatile when it comes to eating and cooking with them. They make great additions to salad, tacos, breakfasts, toast among others but one of the most popular dishes to make with avocados is, of course, guacamole. Guacamole is traditionally made with avocados, onions, jalapenos and cilantro. However, there are many ways to add an exciting twist to your guac. Below is a recipe for one we really enjoy! It’s guacamole with goat cheese. The goat cheese adds an additional creaminess and tang to the guacamole.

Ingredients:
3 avocados, cut into cubes
4 oz crumbled Ile de France Goat Cheese
4 tbsp chopped onion
1/2 medium size jalapeno, seeded and chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 tsp. salt and as needed
3 tbsp. lime juice

Directions:
In a bowl mash avocados until slightly chunky. Add in chopped onion, jalapeno, garlic, lime juice and salt. Then, gently fold in crumbled goat cheese. Serve with pita chips or veggies!
