Halloween Costume for your Cheese

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

October is in full swing and Halloween will be here before you know it! The second most important question of this holiday (right after “what are you going to be for Halloween”) is what are you going to be serving this Halloween?

It is just as fun to dress our food up as it is to dress ourselves up in a scary theme! Some of the most versatile party appetizers around are cheese based, mainly because you can mold, carve and sculpt it into the creepy art that will delight your guests!

We’re highlighting one interesting appetizer from Cleverly Inspired : the Halloween Spider Cheese Ball and Platter Appetizer!

Give this interesting recipe a try and let us know how it goes on our Facebook!

Having French food loving friends visit for the holidays? Surprise them by having a welcome party the French way!

All you need is some French music, a few French greetings to say, a nice bottle of French wine and, of course, a tasty French dish!

One of the best, easiest and the most fun ways to enjoy real French cuisine at home is to make soufflés!  They are fun to cook, flavorful and can be full of surprises!

Moreover, souffles are much easier to make than many people think. Not convinced? Check out our simple souffle cooking tips and then make our delicious Goat Cheese Soufflé recipe.  It’s really easy!!

Bon appétit!

More winning recipes from Dara

Dara writes the Cookin’ Canuck blog and was the chef’s choice winner in our most recent contest.

The Cheese Lover’s Blog was thrilled to hear she put her cheese prizes to good use:

“I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the incredible cheese selection that you sent to me for winning the Chef’s Prize in the Holiday Bash for Cash contest (with my Pan-Fried Brie Cheese with Persimmon Salsa Canapes). As much as I love cheese, I knew there was no way that my family and I were going to enjoy all of that cheese before it spoiled. So, we invited a dozen friends to our house for a cheese and cocktail party.”

CLB wishes it had been at this truly gourmet gathering – by the looks of the recipes Dara made we’re guessing the menu was a hit! Click on the pictures to see the recipes, and stay tuned to www.IledeFranceCheese.com for more contests and cheese prize drawings!

Cheese lover (and recent free cheese recipient!) Dustin McCall served several trays featuring Ile de France cheeses at his Super Bowl party:

“The pictures show hors d’oeuvres I made with your Le petit Pain grille. I topped it with a Greek olive tapenade and a sprinkle of your herbed goat cheese. The flavors were wonderful together.

I also served brie wedges with fresh gingercrisp apples, and as a play on traditional football food I made a Spicy Barbecue Chicken Pizza with Blue Brie. No one had ever tried your blue brie before, and it was a fantastic success,” he said.
