Ahhh, the Power of Cheese Giveaway!!

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

In the wake of Cinco de Mayo, I find myself reflecting on what makes Mexican food so tasty. Last week, the husband and I consumed a record number of Mexican dishes in celebration of the 5th of May--from taco salad to tortas, it was all about the lime, the avocado and of course cheese!

I've always had a bit of a food affair with Mexican grub, if it can be folded up in a cozy tortilla, I'll eat it! There's something about Mexican food that's just comforting. Maybe it's because the entire cuisine has that no frills, just good home cookin' feel to it? Either way, Mexican food just wouldn't be the same without all that gooey, melted cheese perfection. In honor of this and because the lovely people at The English Table are so generous, I've got a treat for you!


i've got goodies...

That, my dear friends, is a Creative Tops Gourmet Cheese Baker! Typically used in French cuisine (baked Camembert, anyone?), I say it's time to broaden the horizons and liven up Nacho Night! Now, my husband does the best nachos I have ever tasted. He piles them onto a cookie sheet and loads it down with cheese and guacamole, sour cream and salsa... and he lets them bake. They're perfect.

But sometimes, you want something quick like tortilla chips and a nice gooey queso dip. How's about making your own with this lovely gourmet cheese baker? The skinny on cheese bakers is this: you can use any soft or semi-soft cheese! A few cheeses that would work well baked and use as dips are:
  • Brie
  • Camembert
  • Queso Asadero
  • Monterrey Jack
  • Stinking Bishop
  • Waterloo
  • Gorgonzola
  • et cetera, et ecetera ...
One lucky winner will receive that gorgeous piece of kitchen kit! It comes wrapped up in a spiffy box, too:
