Gorgonzola with Honey

Utter, spectacular simplicity. JD first had this at Rose Pistola at a dinner for “The Bob.”

1 oz really good gorgonzola cheese per person.  A “Mountain Gorgonzola” adds an awesome nuttiness
The best honey you can find.

Cut the cheese (come on, grow up wouldja!?!?) into sticks. Place two on a plate in some kind of fancy arrangement. Drizzle with the honey and serve. See? Utter simplicity. A little goes a very long way.

Although we first had this served with an old port (great match), it screams out for a sticky white with some acidity to cut through the richness of the cheese. Alsatian VT’s and SGN’s work well as do German BA’s and TBA’s. A sweet Vouvray also shines.
