Fromage Fort

Like some of my other recipes, this is less a “recipe”, so much as “guidelines and suggestions”. This is very much a case of your final product being very much the result of what ingredients you have on hand, and your personal tastes!

Food processor


  • Bits of leftover cheese
  • Butter
  • Fresh garlic peeled and pressed
  • Dry white wine of choice
  • Fresh herbs optional
  • Salt & pepper optional


  • If any of your cheeses have a rind on it, trim the rind and discard it.
  • Place all of your cheese into a food processor, blitz it till it’s finely chopped. Add butter and garlic, continue blitzing until finely chopped and well combined.
  • Slowly stream in your wine, a bit at a time, until the cheese mixture reaches the consistency that you’re looking for. Taste, and add any herbs that you’ll be using, and blitz again.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
  • Cover spread tightly, chill for at least a day to allow flavors to mingle. (Assuming you have patience. We usually do NOT.)
