The temperatures are rising and the sun is out longer and these welcome developments signal another important aspect of Spring: Switching up your cuisine to light, delicious and colorful dishes!

Soon the craving for hearty meals will be replaced by an itch for more elegant eats. In April, we’ll be adding new ideas and recipes for Dessert verrines, offering tips on what cheeses to savor along with a very famous carbonated wine, and will be unveiling our brand new recipe contest, which will feature a new twist and more prizes than ever!

Stayed tuned to the Cheese Lover’s Blog and IledefranceCheese.com for all the details and enjoy your (hopefully) nice weather this weekend!

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.
