Another favorite cheese from our area. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, we are all trying to find one or two easy items to fill out the menu. One of our most requested cheeses is our Bellwether Farms Crescenza with Lavender and Honey. It is a rich and buttery cheese made in a classic Italian style, the has a creamy texture that is just perfect for spreading.

Allow the cheese to come to room temperature, just before serving sprinkle with a pinch of crushed lavender flowers and a generous drizzle of local honey. I love it with a sweet baguette or whole grain crackers. The cheese has just enough tart flavor to offset the sweetness.

A great hors d’oeuvre before the big dinner.
