Perfect way to use up bits and pieces of cheeses left over from Holiday entertaining! Of course, you still can go out and buy it on purpose *LOL* Don't forget to make it ahead.
Serves: 7-8
Prep.Time: 15 minutes
Recipe By: Jacques Pepin (11/16/96 TV Program)
3-4 cups of various Cheeses (Pepin used brie, blue, Swiss and Cheddar but any pieces of leftover cheese will do)
1 clove Garlic -- sliced
1/2 teaspoon Coarse-ground black pepper
1/2 cup Dry White Wine, or more
Place cheeses, garlic, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the wine into a blender or food processor; whirl briefly just until combined. With lid in place, pour wine gradually through hole in the top while processing until consistency is creamy and almost smooth (it's alright if small lumps remain). Spoon mixture into small serving bowl or plate; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 1 hour before serving. Serve as dip or spread with crackers, chips or crudites
NOTES : Feel free to add more garlic and black pepper if desired.
