Fromage Fort (aka Strong Cheese)

I visit my favourite cheese troll and his shop on a regular basis.  While I have some favourites* that I always turn to, Sean always seems to have something new for me to try and unfortunately I have rarely met a cheese that I don’t like!  This usually means that I end up buying way more than I intended and I am often left with various little nubs of cheese in my refrigerator.  A lot of those little pieces were thrown out.  This seemed like such a waste that I went on a search to figure out what I could do with them.  Of course, the French have a solution; Fromage Fort, literally “strong cheese.”

Mushroom & Garlic Bliss

It is the time of year when hosts and hostesses get to shine or collapse from sheer exhaustion.  To keep ourselves out of that latter group, we need to be prepared with tried and true recipes. I came across this recipe for Garlic and Gruyère Stuffed Mushrooms last year when I was helping a friend out with a Christmas luncheon.  Since then, I have made them a dozen times!  These would be perfect to nibble on with a glass of champagne as you toast the New Year!
