It’s pretty much a known fact that I love cheeses, including the bleu cheese variety. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but once people watch the Burnt movie…they will change their mind completely! After being the restaurant industry for over 20 years, I’ve grown a deep passion for food and flavor profiles that ingredients bring to enhance the flavor of food. With the colder months coming up, I knew that I wanted to make a tomato bisque. However, I wanted to elevate the flavor somehow. After look at some of the recipes on the Burnt Movie website, I was totally inspired! I wanted to make a Bleu Cheese tomato bisque, using Castello Danish Bleu. This variety is creamier and has softer notes on the finish. I already know it’s going to be a great compliment for the acidity of the tomatoes.
I wanted to make it an eventful evening. Yes, we could just eat tomato bisque…but why not have a little bit of and turn it into a movie night! Perfect for the kids being off of school tomorrow, and a great pairing with the slightly chilled fall air. With that being said, you really should visit the Burnt Movie site. Not because the movie looks like it’s going to be amazing, but because there are a few amazing recipes that are simple and easy to make and an amazing Giveaway (including a prize of private cooking classes for two or a years worth of Castello Cheese!).
Before you go, let’s go take a look at my amazing recipe that’s so super simple to make and great to freeze for later (if you happen to have any leftovers, that is).
