If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have ONE food to eat, day in and day out, what would it be? Obviously, this is not a question of survival or prolonged good health but rather, what’s that one flavorful food that you can’t imagine living without?
For me, there’s no question — my desert island food is cheese. And not just any cheese, but my all-time favorite goat cheese, Humboldt Fog. Have you ever tried it? A friend introduced me to it years ago (thanks, Kayla!), and despite enjoying many, many delicious cheeses since then, Humboldt Fog has been at the top of my list since that first taste.
It’s a soft-ripened goat cheese with a ribbon of edible vegetable ash running through its center and under its thin white skin. It’s dense, super creamy, and tangy, and even if my island was hot and dry and sandy, I’d still want to eat this cheese every day. It’s that good. Granted, on my ideal island there would also be fresh grapes and figs, honey, and cool, crisp white wine to go with the cheese… but stranded beggars can’t be choosers.
What would you want to eat on your desert island? Fish or fowl? Fruit or veggies? Cheese or…?
