Fig & Olive Cheese Plate

Posted by Maddie on September 23, 2014 at 11:50 PM

I thoroughy enjoyed the selection of crostini appetizers and the foccacia with a tasting of three olive oils, the cheese plate wasn't as satisfying. Why? The small portion. While the cheese plate selection consisted of five cheeses that created a well-rounded combination (Fromage De Chevre (Goat), Robiola (Cow), Manchego (Sheep), Gorgonzola Dolce (Cow), and Rochetta (Cow, Sheep, Goat), the size was surprisingly small--I felt like I was almost eating the scraps Zabar's cheese counter hands out at the end of the workday...


 

In the center of the plate was rosemary, a giant fig, fig jam, and marcona almonds. I especially enjoyed the fig and the fig jam the most, considering that the portion of the cheese was extremely unsatisfying. I have to say I have tasted many cheese plates all over Manhattan, but this was the smallest cheese plate to date. And it's not like the cheeses were that special.. You can get your fill of Manchego, Fromage de Chevre, and Gorgonzola Dolce at Fairway, Zabars, or Citarella (for those New Yorkers out there).

 

If you ever make it out to Fig & Olive, fingers crossed you get larger portions than me!!
