my love of picnics...

seriously...    i need this right now .. with wine.

from my new favorite cook book

recipe: cervelles de canut (fresh cheese with shallots and red wine)serves 4-6

preparation time: 10 minutes
chilling time: 2 hours

you'll need:
8 oz. fromage frais  or cottage cheese
3½ tbsp. crème fraîche
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 small shallot, finely chopped
½ clove of garlic, crushed to a paste
½ tsp. sugar
4 tbsp. finely chopped chives
salt and pepper

drain any excess liquid from the cheese. mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, saving some of the chives for the garnish, and taste for seasoning. cover the bowl and refrigerate the cheese for 2 hours.

sprinkle the cheese with chives and serve chilled.

can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.

or this caprese sandwich (my favorite) either would be great for a picnic.

love sent, xo
