Honey and Gorgonzola Piquant Terrine with Balsamic GlazeHoney and Gorgonzola Piquant Terrine with Balsamic Glaze

If you follow this site, you know how much I like cheese and that, of all cheeses l like Gorgonzola the most.  I easily find Gorgonzola dolce here in Sydney, which is the creamier and milder version of it, but to come across the piquant version… well, that’s much harder.  So when I saw it at the shops, I got quite excited and bought a piece.  Apart from eating it plain, I decided I wanted to make something else with it, something more special and elegant.  That’s when I bumped into this amazing recipe.  This is one of those recipes that you can whip up in a matter of 5 minutes (yes, I am not kidding you!) and serve it for a classy dinner party (or a family picnic)!  I also made a balsamic vinegar reduction to serve with it, as I think it complements the sweet and spicy flavour of the terrine really well.  Serve it with some crusty bread and you will have a fantastic appetiser!  Enjoy!

    Funny, it’s just the opposite here in the US: relatively easy to find the piccante kind, harder to find gorgonzola dolce (although I did spy it at the supermarket yesterday…)

    Anyway, this looks delightful! And I love the color.
