Turn Leftover Cheese Into Fromage Fort

Maybe you hosted a wine and cheese pairing in honor of Bastille Day over the weekend. Or perhaps you decided to have fun with fondue. Either way, you've got eight (expensive) odds and ends of cheese in your fridge that you don't know how to salvage. No worries, make fromage fort, a French cheese spread! Any type of cheese can be used to make this tasty spread for crackers and bread. To learn how it's made,

.

  1. Discard any moldy or dried ends from the cheese.
  2. Place approximately half a pound of cheese chunks into your food processor, along with a couple tablespoons of dry white wine, a garlic clove, and salt and pepper.
  3. Process until smooth and transfer to a serving bowl.
  4. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to a week (the flavor will intensify).

This solution is exciting and incredibly interchangeable. Want to add body? Replace wine with cream. For more bite, swap the wine for cognac. Tossing herbs, like parsley or dill, into the food processor when blending will add flavor. Need a quick, delicious hors d'œuvre? Spread fromage fort onto bread and broil for a few minutes. Très bien!

What I do is totally unimaginative, but I usually just have a wine and cheese night with leftover cheese. Cheese and several different kinds of crackers, fruits, and marinated olives...along with the wine of course. This is pretty creative, I'll have to give it a try! Mmmmmm cheese...

Or, depending on the cheese, you can just make mac n' cheese. A frittata? Sandwiches? I like certain cheeses in certain things but never have a problem using them.

Oh why didn't this get posted a few weeks ago? My boyfriend and I had sooo much leftover cheese from a pre-dinner wine and cheese tasting with friends and it just went bad :(

This is fab! I usually just make me and hubby a tasty treat on the nice cutting board with Fujis (it's the only apple I like), pears, melon and all the leftover cheese bits. We eat entirely too much cheese. ;)

A great wine with fondues is a wine from Apremont...Ok, might be a little obscure for most people. If you can't find that I would suggest a Pinot Blanc from Alsace. Cheers, Angela
