I had some pumpkin pizzelles left over from my luxury dinner party and was looking around to see what I could have as a snack. After spotting the also leftover figs and Camembert (compliments of Ile De France) I couldn’t resist making a little sandwich.

What you’ll need:
Pumpkin pizzelles
Camembert Cheese
Dried Figs – sliced

YUM!

Lunch Time!

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Nothing says lunch like sandwiches and soup.

But be careful – These basic dishes are just as likely to be boring and bland as they are delicious. With a little tasty cheese, however, there won’t be any risk of blandness.

Here’s one example of a delicious sandwich and soup combo that features just enough gourmet flare to make lunch savory without making it too complicated to enjoy on the average Tuesday.

Simply add the Brie and apple and grill till melted. Brie is a world famous French soft cheese with a creamy interior and edible rind. It becomes even more yummy when melted. Its great to add to BLT’s, salad, omelletes, the list goes on!

How long have you been cooking and when / why did you develop a passion for food?

I’ve been cooking since I was very young – or at least trying to – and studied culinary arts when my two oldest children were 3 and 1. I graduated in 1994 and have been in the food industry in one way or another since then. To me food and family are nearly synonymous, it’s hard to have one without the other!

What do you like about French cheese?

French cheeses are so much more varied than people think, and each has a smoothness in flavor that isn’t as evident in other cheeses.

Favorite thing to serve at a party or family gathering?

I serve what I like and share it with others. You can’t go wrong with a favorite of your own, and people love to hear stories about food. I adore goat cheese and tapenade and try to turn everyone on to it. So far my kids are in love with it and sometimes I have to hide my portion!

Anne’s Grilled Fol Epi Sandwich

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

About six months ago I learned that one of my great-grandfathers was a cheese maker. I was thrilled at this information for obvious reasons, the least of which is my love of cheese. I’ve tried so many types of cheese, some memorable and others not so, but I rarely find a cheese that I dislike. Ile De France produces many of my favorite French cheeses and I’m always happy to try new ones.

French cheeses are so different in nature than others and I find that each has a quality to it that pairs well with certain foods; sort of like I fine wine. Fol Epi is a cheese with a distinctive flavor likened to Emmental. Nutty and smooth, it doesn’t have quite the bite that a Swiss would have and is milder in flavor, but equally delicious.

My favorite grilling cheese is of the Swiss variety, so I knew exactly what would become of this lovely sampling. The sandwich was so good, and the flavor of the cheese so mild, that my 3 year-old daughter couldn’t get enough … thankfully the other kids were out for the day.
