Gorgonzola does a little guest starring in a dessert today. Since it pairs so well with pears (sorry, couldn’t resist) I made a crumble and put some in.
Yikes, stinky cheese in our dessert? You may be thinking I’ve gone a bit mad, or you may already be fantasising about how it tastes. Depends how much of a cheese person you are. But have you tried pear with gorgonzola? Or any blue cheese for that matter? It’s a great combo. And since this particular stinky cheese is slightly sweet, it works very well in desserts. The inspiration came from this beautiful crisp by How Sweet It Is, which I’ve tried and tested as is with figs (amazing). But I wanted to try pears instead. So I did. It’s yummy. But you’ve got to love cheese!
If cheese in a dessert isn’t your thing, just omit the gorgonzola for a tasty but plain pear crumble, or better yet, go for this chocolate one! I’ve got you covered.
So, what really strange cheese combos have you tried recently?
