Humboldt Fog (Mini or slice)
Equipment: culinary blowtorch or broiler
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.
