A Little Something to Cozy Up With
La Tur is an Italian robiola-style of cheese that looks like a cupcake.
It’s blessed with a captivating mix of textures: the center is dense and cakey,
cushioned by a layer of frosting-like ooze and a pillowy-rind.
It’s a total butterball with enough complexity
to keep you constantly yearning for another lick.
How does one start a blog called Cheese Sex Death?
A lot of people ask me how I became a full-time cheese preacher,
going from enthusiastic eater to grating Parmigiano
directly into my mouth for thousands of followers.
It’s been a bumpy little ride, with lots of ups and downs and utter failures.
Let me take you through it.
Having the necessities to whip up a platter at any time is essential to the cheese slut lifestyle.
Whether for an impromptu gathering or just to treat yourself to dinner,
you’ll be prepared if you keep stocked with something from each category below.
These are the four cheese board essentials I always have on hand.
Triple creams are the most crowd-pleasing cheeses out there.
They’re made with added cream and have a fat content of 75%* or more,
creating a texture as plush and yielding as softened butter.
One of my fav triple creams is Mt Tam from Cowgirl Creamery in Petaluma, California.
You’re going to fall in love with this macaroni and cheese for three reasons:
it’s infused with sage and nutmeg, it’s made with “butter cheese,”
and it only requires 1 pot and 30 minutes to make.
There’s no better time to eat carbs coated in cheese than in the dead of winter.
This recipe is really no more difficult or tedious than boxed mac,
but it’s a way bigger upgrade.
January is not an ideal time to go on a diet. It’s cold AF outside,
and all I want to do is comfort myself with melted cheese and carbs.
I definitely do not want a kale salad or a quinoa stirfry.
I want some hot, gooey lasagna and I want it now.
Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
Just cause you’re trying to eat healthier doesn’t mean
you have to miss out on the sensual joys of food.
Cheese makes eating healthy so much more enjoyable.
Besides, cheese is a superfood too.
Cheesy loaded sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat in the wintertime.
Blankets of melty cheese smothering hot, velvety orange flesh–it’s almost too seductive to be healthy.
You can stuff them with anything your heart desires, too.
Here are a few of my favorite flavor combinations.
