Katrina's Inspiration"I first experimented with cheese and chocolate while developing the Rooster truffle. The dark chocolate truffle combined taleggio cheese with organic walnuts and anchors the Collezione Italiano. One of my favorite things to do is pair the perfect combinations of olive oil , salts, peppers and other ingredients. Finally, I match them to their chocolate mate. For this recipe, I crumbled a Reishi Mushroom & Walnut Super Dark Chocolate Bar atop the cheese."
Directions1. Place Ricotta in a dish. Stir in salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Chop dark chocolate into fine slivers and sprinkle atop. Serve with crackers.
You can also serve this Ricotta with an hors d'oeuvre plate. I included nuts, cherries, a few other cheeses and some black pepper crackers.
