|Key words:||garlic, cheese||Category:||Appetizers|
|Ingredients:||2 heads garlic
1/2 lb pecorino romano cheese
1 large handful cilantro
2 tsp rue
2 heaping tsp chopped fresh celery leaf
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
|Preparation:||Peel and roughly chop the garlic.
Grate the cheese.
Roughly chop the herbs.
If you're using a mortar, the way Martial describes, you need to make it as though it were allioli, ie, start with the garlic and salt and pound it to a pulp, then add the cheese and herbs, then the liquids and mix them well.
If you're using a food processor, add all the solid ingredients and process till smooth, then add the liquids.
Either way, gather it up into a ball and chill it.
Serve it with crusty bread.
|Notes:||Serves 6 -- or 4 if one of them is me.|
