Humboldt Fog Brulee

Sweet dreams are made of sugar, fire, and cheese.

Here’s your next ridiculously delicious party trick! We used a Humboldt Fog Mini here, but you can brûlée any Cypress Grove soft-ripened cheese — wheel or slice.

1. Start by slicing off the top rind of the wheel.


Not using a wheel? Cut a piece of whichever cheese you're using. You'll want some exposed paste.

2. Sprinkle a thin layer of sugar over the paste.


Raw sugar works best, but use what you have on hand!

3. Torch it.


Using a culinary blowtorch, heat the sugar until you have a golden brown, crunchy crust. Keep that torch moving so the sugar doesn’t scorch. No torch? No problem. Broil it in the oven — but keep a close eye on it.

4. Bust out the crackers, bread, fruit, spoons — whatever your heart desires.


Prepare to be treated like a rockstar.
