Red-Pepper Jelly with Grissini and Montasio Cheese
Grissini are Italian breadsticks—not the typical stubby, sesame-coated ones but the svelte, supercrunchy ones. Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson serves them with a sweet-tart red-pepper jelly (a recipe handed down from his grandmother) and wedges of Montasio cheese. Cocktail Party Recipes
Recipe Summary test
To simplify this recipe, serve the jelly and cheese with store-bought grissini or water crackers, or do the opposite—buy the jelly and make the delicious, crisp breadsticks. Montasio cheese, made from cow's milk, comes from the Friuli region of Italy and is slightly nutty and fruity. You could also try pairing the jelly and breadsticks with a fabulous cheese from Piedmont. Creamy, blue Gorgonzola and runny Robiola are the most famous. Crumbly Castelmagno is prized by cheese lovers.
