Entertaining and looking to get away from your typical cheese and crackers? Of course you are! While it’s lovely to splurge on a few of the highest quality aged cheeses now and then, sometimes the budget may not allow. The solution? Go for a ‘feature’ baked cheese as the star of the show. This approach is not only kinder to your wallet, but your guests really appreciate the different ingredients, and the effort you’ve gone to. That’s why we love this amazing recipe for Baked Ricotta with Roasted Grapes. It looks gorgeous, tastes amazing, and features some different elements your guests may not have tried before.
Firstly, let’s just break down the baked ricotta. It’s fluffy, puffs up almost like a souffle in the oven, and is gloriously warm and inviting. Then we have the roasted grapes. Which take on a jammy, savoury quality. When combined on your favourite thick cracker or bread, it’s a taste sensation!
Ricotta with roasted grapes is such a differently delicious idea for a fancy cheese plate. We’ve made a recipe which perfectly suits our 300 gram Olympus Fresh Ricotta, which you can find in most independent retailers. Like most of our recipes, this is super easy to pull off. However, we can’t take credit for the combination itself. The clever chef Rachel Ray has a wonderful Baked Ricotta with Roasted Grapes recipe which was a total inspiration!
Make this dish for your next special night, and look like a total boss.
