Enter! Eat! Enjoy! prizesGourmet food prizes have recently been won from the following Savor Calfornia companies in the contest on our Facebook page.
Cheese companionsValley Lahvosh crackers are the perfect setting for any cheese. Shapes make your cheese board interesting: rounds, hearts, and stars (at the holidays). If you top cream cheese with smoked salmon and capers, so much the better!
Pizzas and cheese just naturally go together, but these combinations are truly extraordinary.
Check out Kasey and Matthew's recipe on Turntable Kitchens for Wild Mushroom & Crescenza Pizza (below) made with Bellwether Farms' Crescenza.
Here's another unusual pizza where cheese plays a supporting role. Roasted Garlic & Olive Pizza (below), which uses Roasted Garlic Olive Bruschetta Salsa from Sierra Madre Grocery Co.
Cream cheese can be taken to a new, tasty level by topping it with --
Crazzberry Fiesta from Art of Chipotle.
Hot or Medium Salsa from Mrs. A's Salsa Buena.
Bora Bora Sauce from Culinary Twist.
Terra Sonoma makes Saba, a thick sweet cooking syrup, from the "must" of their estate grown winegrapes. Try it poured over goat cheese from Redwood Hill Farm and accompanied by toasted walnuts, below.
Oak-wood smoked Spanish paprika and sea salt bring out the earthy taste of Oren's Kitchen' Smoked Paprika Pecans. With blue cheese, below.
Products that B & R Farms makes from Dried Blenheim Apricots complement cheese and make a colorful presentation as well. Try Red Pepper Topping (shown below), Chili Preserves, or Chutney on Marin French Cheese Rouge et Noir Brie.
Strawberry Goat Cream Cheese PieFresh strawberries and Crème de Chevre Beyond Traditional cream cheese from Meyenberg Goat Milk make a delicious spring dessert.
