Chef Josh Berry and Maggie Knowles are both native Mainers who agree that cheese makes even the worst days better. They fell in love at a beekeeping conference and joined culinary and creative forces through recipes, photography, and writing. They also work as restaurant consultants through the B Frame. Josh’s career has taken him throughout cheese capitals such as Switzerland, Italy, and Vermont; his favorite cheese is Cabot Clothbound. Maggie has written about food, theater, and parenting; her current favorite cheese is Big Sky Grana. When not eating, they are tending to their chickens, bees, small dogs, and big teenagers.
Agrodolce is an Italian condiment that translates to “sour and sweet.” In this version, Gorgonzola and raw honey are whipped together, becoming the focal point of a wintry happy hour spread. Add it to sandwiches or on top of steak for elevated flavor.
Sweet and peppery basil, salty pancetta, and tangy goat brie twirled with thin pasta make for a decadent dinner. The rinds of the goat cheese wheels are edible and add to the luxurious texture of this sauce.
