5 of the Tastiest Cheese Recipes to Make at Home
At Crush HQ, we are mildly obsessed with cheese. It’s one of the most versatile ingredients out there; have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Want to give a dish more depth of flavour? Add cheese. Want to neutralize or balance a dessert? Add cheese. Simply put, life is better with cheese. We called upon the expertise of Executive Chef Rudi Liebenberg and Executive Pastry Chef Craig Hibbert at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel to show us their five tastiest cheese recipes to make at home.
Cheese Recipe 1: Roasted Pears with Blue Cheese and Walnuts
These flavours are a classic combo for a reason – pears are the perfect sweet compliment to a creamy blue cheese. This dish is sophisticated and yet really easy to make. Think, starter for a stylish dinner party, or even a cheese course at the end of a great meal for those with less of a sweet tooth.
Cheese Recipe 2: Red Pepper and Brie Soup
A hearty soup that has a decadently rich flavour from the inclusion of melted Brie cheese. To tip you over the edge, pipe some whipped Brie cheese onto bread sticks and dunk away into cheesy heaven.
Cheese Recipe 3: Ricotta and Spinach Gnudi with a Sage Beurre Noisette
Gnudi are very similar to gnocchi, although are made with ricotta cheese instead of potato. The sage beurre noisette adds a classic richness to this dish.
Cheese Recipe 4: Pan-fried Sourdough Cheese Sandwich
The taste of a good sourdough is so much better than normal shop bought bread. If you prefer, get wild and mix up your sandwich filling with a combination of different cheeses.
Cheese Recipe 5: New York Style Cheesecake
Cheesecake is a classic and a NY-style one is beautiful in its simplicity. This is one of our go-to favourites for any occasion. It’s really easy to make and comes out perfectly every time.
