Many thanks to everyone who joined in last month’s Cheese, Please! challenge – with comments, recipes and visits to all the blogs who linked up. Now it’s time for a quick round up of all those fruity, cheesy recipes…

Before I’d had too much time to worry about what to do if no one came along to the Cheese, Please! party, Jacqueline from Edibletcetera arrived bearing a delicious-looking Fig and Goat Cheese Tart. Her tart has the added flavours of thyme, honey and lemon to compliment the fruit and cheese.


And, being a perfect party guest, Jacqueline also brought along Fresh Figs Grilled with Goat Cheese, Honey and Thyme. A well timed recipe, providing a great use for the late summer fig harvest.

My offering of Apple & Wensleydale Salad was next along.


Then a lovely dish of Goat Cheese and Honey Baked Apple with Balsamic and Honey Glazed Prawns was added to the table by Petra from Food Eat Love. Petra says in her post that this was an experimental combination of flavours… one that worked really well.


The first blue cheese recipe came along next – Blue Cheese Mousse & Balsamic Baked Pears from Elmarie at Flippenblog. I’ve saved some pears from our tree to try this recipe. Served with fresh salad leaves and some walnuts to add a crunch, it looks like a perfect mix of flavours.

I hope there will still be some pears left, because I also plan to try making the Potato and Pear Galette with Roquefort from New Recipe Night. Might just leave out the grease proof paper garnish though…


Jane from Fromage Homage, the mastermind behind, and usual host of, Cheese, Please! came along next with her Cheddar and Apple Scone Bread. This one looks perfect for with a bowl of warming soup on a cool autumn day.

After all these savoury dishes, I added a Pear & Cherry Cake served with Ginger Mascarpone.

And then Cathy from Words and Herbs arrived with her Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies and Berry Coulis – can’t think of a better way to end the party…


So that’s it. A fruity collection of cheese recipes for September’s Cheese, Please! I’ll hand the challenge back over to Jane at Fromage Homage now. Make sure you check out her blog for future themes and link ups. And thanks for loaning Cheese, Please! to me for the month Jane.
