Certifying that cheese is not just for the board, the creamy, French blue cheese is also a versatile, tasty and easy-to-incorporate ingredient that will work for every meal in that ‘what day is it again?’ period between Christmas and New Year, as well as for New Year’s Eve party canapés.

Cheese on Toast

Use the leftovers from your cheese board to make a simple, old-school savoury dish. Simply top sourdough bread with cheese, sprinkle over some black pepper and toast under the grill – a brilliant New Year’s Day treat.

Cheese Dip

Mix a wedge of cheese with 150g Crème Fraiche and 150g mayonnaise to make a delicious dip for leftover roast potatoes that will see you through the period between Christmas and New Year. It’s also a great accompaniment to crisp chicken wings.

Cheese Canapés

Wrap a cooked asparagus tip and a dab of cheese in a spring roll wrapper, then bake or fry until crisp for the ultimate New Year’s party nibble bound to tickle your guests’ tastebuds.
