The Cheese Bored
With nothing better to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I decided it would be a good idea to record some ideas I had either made or dreamt, using fromage blanc from a farm in Orland (available at the Milk Pail). Fromage frais/blanc is similar to farmer’s cheese, neufchatel and quark. It also makes a good substitute for cream cheese or ricotta, depending on the prerogative of the maker’s preferences on texture. It is incredibly reasonable in price and lends a nice tangy full flavor, whipped into thick spreadable wads of ecru nutrition. To me, it tastes like a deconstructed pillow, tacky with satisfaction. Then again, cheese may be my most favorite thing in the world. You may have a different experience.
Just thought you might be interested in a couple more Orland Farm/Milk Pail fromage blanc serving ideas that I came up with! :) It’s just so inexpensive to cook with, that the possibilities really should be endless.
