Have you heard of Humboldt Fog goat cheese (yes, it’s the one with a streak of ash running through it). This is possibly our favorite cheese and made by the kind folks up at Cyprus Grove Cheese Company in Northern California. Sort of a dreamy goat, sort of a mild blue, but with a nutty creamy texture & flavor that pairs beautifully with our O Blood Orange Olive Oil.
Place the wedge of room temperature Humboldt Fog cheese on a small serving plate with a slight lip. Break up the wedge slightly with a cheese knife or small spoon. This will allow the oil to permeate the cheese and make it easier for everyone to scoop up with small spoons or chunks of crusty bread. Drizzle the oil over the cheese.
Splash the O Orange Blossom Champagne Vinegar gently around the edge of the platter where the Blood Orange olive oil has pooled.
We like to use small spoons to scoop the mixture onto french baguette slices with the cheese & just allow everyone to dip & swirl as much as they like. We recently served this to all of our visitors at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco — around 5,000 servings. People were so filled with joy at the discovery of a new flavor combination & taste sensation. The idea of serving O Blood Orange Olive Oil & cheese with a splash of O Orange Blossom Champagne Vinegar kept people coming back on day 2 & 3. It was so much fun to share our love of all things O! Food is fun.
