For the West Coast Ale, we offer Bruschettas with Roquefort and Caramelized Pears . The creamy, tangy blue cheese contrasts nicely with the bitterness of the beer, while the sweetness of the caramelized pears highlights its malty notes.
Ingredients for 2 people:
- 4 slices of country bread
- 100g Roquefort or other blue cheese
- 2 ripe pears, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- A few walnuts, roughly chopped, for garnish
Caramelization of Pears :
- In a frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat.
- Add the pear slices and sprinkle with brown sugar.
- Cook the pears until tender and caramelized, then set them aside.
Preparation of Bruschettas :
- Toast the country bread slices until crispy.
- Spread the Roquefort generously on each slice of toast.
- Arrange the caramelized pear slices on the blue cheese.
- Top each bruschetta with chopped nuts to add crunch and a nutty flavor.
- Serve immediately so the cheese is warm and creamy, contrasting with the crusty bread.
The combination of rich blue cheese and sweet pears strikes the perfect balance with the bitterness and complexity of a West Coast Ale, making every bite and sip a memorable taste experience.
Cheers & Stay Brewtiful!
