Bleu d’Auvergne Goes with Everything
Just Like Your Favorite Cardigan
It finally feels like fall here in Chicago and I’m ready for roasted root vegetables, spiced apple pie, and too much whiskey.
You know what goes well with all of those things? Bleu d’Auvergne, a mild and rustic blue cheese from France.
It’s affordable, widely available, and easy to pair with any combination of fall flavors,
from spiced pumpkin to caramel apples.
You can crumble it on almost anything. Here are three bites to inspire all your bleu fantasies.
Bleu d’Auvergne with Pear
Juicy pear compliments the decadent texture of this blue on a cheese plate or melted into a grilled cheese sandwich. Sometimes I fantasize about a warm pear soufflé topped with Bleu d’Auvergne ice cream.
Bleu d’Auvergne with Effie’s Homemade Corncakes and Pepper Jelly
I love the rustic combination of corn biscuits and hearty bleu cheese. The sweet, spicy jam echoes the cheese’s peppery kick.
Bleu d’Auvergne with Roast Beets
Earthy, sweet beets are always delicious with a salty bleu. Try it in a salad with toasted walnuts, a bit of peppery arugula, and a simple lemon vinaigrette.
