TGRWT #18 - Reminder Of Closing Date

As host of They Go Really Well Together (TGRWT) Round 18, I've invited food bloggers and professional chefs to come up with interesting and tasty dishes that combine plum and blue cheese.

They Go Really Well Together - Plum & Blue CheeseIf you haven't found time to try something out yet, don't panic. You've got another two weeks until the deadline of September 1st. All you have to do between now and then is to prepare a dish using plum and blue cheese (either an existing recipe or your own invention), write up your preparation on your own blog with at least one photo and some comments about how the flavour pairing went. Then drop me an email or comment on my blog telling me where to find your write-up.
We've had some interesting submissions so far, ranging from snack food to fine dining and from a cave man's savoury/umami feast to the most intricate and delicate bitter-sweet dessert. And one would-be entrant who's got me excited by proposing to use plum in the form of a certain Slavic liqueur (well I did encourage thinking outside the box). So, come on and join in. You never know - you might just discover that, when you balance it with fruit, you quite like blue cheese after all.

What made you choose blue cheese as oppose to mild cheese

Carl - if you go back to the original spec on blog.khymos and my initial write-up, you'll see that this is about unusual pairings based on scientific evidence of common odorant molecules. And blue cheese shares at least three different such molecules with plum. Simples!

I blew this deadline because I was out of town, but I'm still going to make one of my ideas because I want to. Stay tuned...

Peter - no problem. I look forward to your efforts and if I have time to append them to the round-up, I will.
