WHO: Katrina Markoff, CEO and Founder of Vosges Haut Chocolat
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.”
