It has been a very long time since I’ve made this Potted Cheese recipe. The last time was for a pre-dinner nibble with friends. The ‘he’ of the couple had been in the restaurant business for years, and whether learned from the business, or it was just natural, he had one of the finest palates for food I have ever seen. He could pick out the ingredients in many of the dishes I served over time, but this Potted Cheese left him wondering, all he could say to this was ‘this is good!”.
