Romantic Chicory Gondolas with Gorgonzola and Walnuts
The delicately peppery taste of Italian Gorgonzola finds its true match with the slightly bitter chicory and crunchy walnuts.
80gr Italian Gorgonzola
40gr soft white cheese (Philadelphia, Fromage Frais or Mascarpone)
50gr whole walnuts
1 head of chicory
1. Using a fork mash the soft white cheese together with the Gorgonzola and combine into a homogenous mixture.
2. Form small balls using your hands. You can wet them a little so that the mixture doesn’t stick.
3. Carefully separate the chicory leaves and place them on a platter. Put a cheese ball onto each leaf and decorate with a walnut.
4. You can make this dish up to step 2 the previous day and assemble before dinner.
