23 Jun Partnering with Castello for a Summer of Blue
One of my favorite things about summer is being able to cook outdoors. It’s hard to cook outdoors in the city so I take full advantage of it whenever I head home to NJ on weekends. This past weekend was father’s day weekend and my dad wanted to go camping.
When we go camping my dad always goes all out with cast iron cooking. This time around we set up a stove top and used a cast iron griddle to make these tasty flatbreads. It was the perfect snack for in between lunch and dinner. They are also simple to make, all you need is a grill or grill top and a handful of ingredients.
We used pita bread as the base and toasted it on the grill top to give it a little crunch. I absolutely love cheeses with distinct flavors so I chose to use Castello’s extra creamy Danish Blue. I like the consistency of this cheese because it gets fairly soft and the flavor has just the right amount of strength.
I then chose ingredients that paired well with blue cheese: arugula, grilled peaches, sliced shallots, walnuts, and a drizzle of balsamic fig vinegar. The juicy peaches were great for the warm weather and paired nicely with the Castello cheese.
