TALEGGIO CHEESE MOUSSE

Ingredients:

100g of “Taleggio”  Cheese

About a dozen crushed walnuts 

A  nob of  butter

Preparation:

Put all the ingredients in to your mixer

Serve the “Taleggio” Mousse in a small bowl and place the bowl on a platter with crackers and French toast.

 ( A hint from Zia – you can substitute the” Taleggio” cheese with Stilton or Gorgonzola and nearly all good super-markets have a good choice of Italian cheeses )

GOATS CHEESE MOUSSE WITH  RED PEPPERS

Ingredients:

One packet of  Goats Cheese

1-2 red peppers

A pinch  of salt and  ground black pepper

A drop of Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( adjust the oil at the end)

Roast the peppers in the oven or you can do it on a griddle pan if you prefer.

When the peppers are soft – gently peel off the skin.

Cut the peppers into strips and add a little olive  oil and a dash of pepper .

Put the peppers and the goats cheese into a mixer ( adjust the oil if it is too dry)

Serve the Goats Cheese  Mousse in a small bowl and place the bowl  on a platter with crackers and French toast.

A suggestion from Zia Mirella –  you can serve it differently using fresh tomatoes  as follows:

  • Scoop out the inside of the tomatoes
  • Leave the tomatoes to stand up-side down to let out the excess liquid 
  • Fill the tomatoes with the mixed goats cheese and peppers

Zia Mirella guarantees both these varieties will be a great success with your family and guests.
