Don’t Tell Mom But I'm Eating My Goat Cheese and Fig Ice Cream Before Dinner
Hi! I’m Alexandra and I am a new (excited, naive and food-obsessed) intern at Culture. I don’t know a ton about cheese but I love to eat it and I am eager to learn more. Will has asked me to make my first blog post and I immediately thought of ice cream. Get ready for your mind to be blown.
I cannot think of a better way to savor the last few days of warm California weather than with this amazingly delicious and savory ice cream recipe. I would have never thought to pair cheese and ice cream, but I must say that this Honey Goat Cheese and Fig Swirl Ice Cream, via Erin's Food Files, not only sounds fun to make, but even more fun to eat.
I would say the honey flavor is more prominent than the goat cheese. I also love that the goat cheese cuts the sweetness of the ice cream. The fig butter swirled in is like the icing on the cake. It makes for an interesting contrast in texture, as the ice cream is incredibly smooth, and the fig butter a bit gritty. This is a classic flavor combination, but unique in ice cream. To say I enjoyed this ice cream would be an understatement!
Since food, especially ice cream always seems to disappear due to roommates with the late night munchies, I might have to double the recipe, just in queso. ;)
