Piccolo: Cheese Plate

Piccolo: Cheese Plate

Cheese plate. I’d originally ordered the chocolate cremeux but was not inspired by the look of it as it was brought to our neighbours (one advantage of tables being so close together, I guess). And so I swapped out for the cheese plate with a slight supplement to the prix fixe. Along with some nice house-made preserves and crackers came fairly large portions of: a gorgonzola dolce; Tomini, another Italian soft cow’s milk cheese, oil-packed with chilli and oregano; and Capriole, O’Banon, a goat cheese from Indiana wrapped in bourbon-soaked chestnut leaves (the bourbon is Woodford Reserve as per the website). The cheeses were all very good but the consistency and even the tang of the Tomini and the O’Banon were very similar. The gorgonozola, and one of those two with something harder and nuttier would have been just the ticket.
