Last week I had the pleasure of having dinner at a wonderful restaurant here in San Francisco which is really close to my office. I wasn’t aware just how close Bar Agricole was and will certainly return to try more of their menu! They have a beautiful terrace and a well-designed restaurant, it is definitely a hidden gem.
I love cheese plates. More and more these days it is my preferred dessert. I am moving away from cloyingly sweet dessert and prefer a hint of sweetness with much more savory. The cheese plate is the perfect choice because you usually have elements that are served with the cheeses as accompaniments (like honey or jam) which allow you to “sweeten” you cheese as much or as little as you like.
My perfect cheese plate include a goat cheese, a blue or roquefort and something in the manchego/parmesan variety with honey and nuts. Bread is optional for me on a cheese plate, I can take it or leave it.
What about you? Do you like cheese? What would your cheese plate look like?
