Day 601 : Yummies to go with a Chevre

So we all know the classic fig walnut cakes and jams that are meant to pair with cheeses right? Yesterday I discovered a white fig, bay leaf and raisin spread crafted by Les Folies Fromages in the Pyrenees that to me really stood out from the jams to be served with cheese crowd.

Somewhat sweet yet herbaceous and aromatic, this was light yet flavorful, didn't overwhelm the cheese, but certainly asserted its presence. When paired with our Humboldt Fog, it was a moment of cheese and jam perfection.

Apparently they make spreads/jams for other types of cheese as this one was geared specifically to chevres...I will have to try them.
