KATRINA’S GUEST WORTHY RECIPE: Ricotta Cheese with Olive Oil and Dark Chocolate

WHY? “I first experimented with cheese and chocolate while developing the Rooster truffle. The dark chocolate truffle combined taleggio cheese with organic walnuts and anchors the Collezione Italiano. One of my favorite things to do is pair the perfect combinations of olive oil, salts, peppers, and other ingredients. Finally, I match them to their chocolate mate. For this recipe, I crumbled a Smoked Salt Chocolate Bar atop the cheese.”

INGREDIENTS

1 Vosges Smoked Salt Chocolate Bar (Need 1-1/2 oz.)

2 c (or lbs) of fresh ricotta cheese

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Pinch of pink salt

Pinch of white pepper

DIRECTIONS

Place ricotta in a dish. Stir in salt and pepper.

Drizzle with olive oil.

Chop dark chocolate into fine slivers and sprinkle on top.

Serve with crackers.
