My favorite cheesemonger, Dexa introduced me to a new product that I added to my signature cheese platter. It’s called – Panforte, an Italian inspired fruit & nut torte handcrafted in Door County, Wisconsin by Savory Spoon. I had to try it for two reasons: 1) everything Dexa recommends is fantastic and 2) I love Door County!
Panforte is an Italian confection from the 15th century originating in Sienna, Italy. It’s slightly sweet, and nutty – a perfect combination for pairing with cheese. Savory Spoon uses the finest locally sourced cherries and honey – yum!
I choose to pair it with an aged Gouda also from Wisconsin. It was a big hit with my friends! We enjoyed this pairing with a bottle of Black Opal Shiraz. I highly recommend adding Panforte from www.SavorySpoon.com to your next cheese board! Enjoy!
