It's the most wonderful time of the year! Post-holiday shindig, when you've got a few hunks of cheese left over that don't look quite appetizing, you don't have to subject them to the trash. Enter: fromage fort. The genius (and delicious) way to use up all your cheesy odds and ends after a party, a particularly indulgent dinner, or whatever. Who cares how you got the cheese? The point is you can make fromage fort!
Translated as “strong cheese,” it’s a delightfully economical blend of whatever odds and ends of cheese you have around, some wine, garlic, salt, pepper and herbs, if you’re feeling it. Softer cheeses make it creamier. Harder cheeses can benefit from a pat of butter. You can use it right away or “age” it a little more, up to a week is safest. For a treat, you can run your slice of bread spread with the fromage fort under the broiler.
