I am absolutely crazy about cheese. I love all kinds of different cheese varying from blue cheese, to caramelized brown Norwegian goats cheese. One of cheeses I use the most at home is feta cheese, often I go for the goat version, but I like to vary them and there is nothing like a good old Greek salad filled with soft and mild feta.
The funny thing about cheese is that you can use it in so many ways. I have actually just made a blog post at Apetina on how to use feta cheese in many different ways. And lately I have been experimenting a lot on how to approach this wonderful food. I have found that dessert work quite well with cheese. Both in the classic way with honey dripping nuts, fresh figs and dried dates served with a big lump of salty mature cheese. But also in new and very different ways where feta cheese has been added to cheesecakes and frostings.
One of my new favourite dessert cheese recipes will have to be these blackberry galettes with feta cheese. I am a real pie kind of girl, and I really love the look of these beautiful rustic galettes. The blackberries are in season right now and I can simply walk into my garden and pick some if I feel like making this dessert. Instead of adding a whole lot refined sugar I thought it was more delicious to make a date-caramel and smear across the whole grain crust, then I topped it of with blackberries and salty feta cheese (the soft kind that can melt a bit) and you get a perfect flavor combination and some wonderful individual sized dessert pies. The pies freeze well and I made a big batch and saved half in the freeze for the next time I have a dinner or brunch.
