Asiago-September's Cheese of the Month

Well, September is here and I've finally chosen my cheese. After careful consideration and many shopping trips to the cheese case at the grocery store, I've chosen Asiago Cheese for this month. It has been a long time favorite of mine and I would love to find some new uses for it. So, far all I do with it is put it on salad or a sandwich and occasionally make a sauce from it. But now I'm on a quest for something a little different and I would love for you to join me....

To recap what the Cheese of the Month Challenge is:

Every month I'm going to select a cheese and make a dish with it. The purpose is to experiment with something that you wouldn’t normally make. Anyone is welcome to join me. Here are the rules:

1. Check my blog, Adventures in Gluttony, on the FIRST of every month to see what cheese I chose. http://adventuresingluttony.blogspot.com/

2. Everyone will use the Cheese of the Month Cheese in either a recipe they make up or one they find. They can be simple or advanced. The dishes can be anything your little heart desires.You have the ENTIRE month to make something. By the LAST day of the end of the month post on YOUR blog the recipe, a picture (if possible), and a summary of how it went and if you liked it. If you chose to use a recipe that isn’t your own make sure to include where the recipe came from.3. Send me an email with the link to your blog by no later than the LAST day of each month and I will post the links on my blog so that everyone can see how everyone else did. My email is: Thats_so_cheesy@yahoo.com

You can make more than one dish if you like. Just make sure to indicate that to me in your email. If you recipe doesn’t turn out post it on your blog anyways. Just make sure to explain why you didn’t like the dish and/or what went wrong. Make sure to share your dish with your friends and family and get their reactions.I’m really excited about this and I hope to get as many people as possible to participate. It will be a neat way to collect some delicious recipes and try new things.

Oooo - cheese of the month? It even sounds good!

Asiago is a new one to me - I'll need to swing past the cheese shop and see if I can find some.

Great idea!

Kittie: Whooray! I'm so glad that you've decide to joined me!!

Asiago can be found in any grocery store like Weis or Giant. It would be were the "speciality/international" cheeses are...in a seperate case from the "normal" dairy cheese.

Bummer... I can't find asiago. Okay, so I only went to the commissary and one German supermarket but they didn't have it. Things have been crazy around here and I can't get out to search other stores. I hope I can hop in next month!!!

Cristine: Oh no! I was so looking forward to seeing what you would create, too. :-( Well, don't worry next month I'm choosing a really easy to find cheese.
