I’m in love with this Garlic Cheese recipe from Sharon Hudgins’ new book Food on the Move: Dining on the Legendary Railway Journeys of the World but if you find a pile of it dead in a ditch, blame my cardiologist. She’s not too fond of me eating it. Maybe that’s because I prefer mainlining it from a cereal bowl with a spoon made of bacon as opposed to just a little taste here and there.
Sharon tells us, “This garlic-flavored cheese mixture is popular in many parts of Russia. Local cooks in Siberian villages make zakuski (starters) of garlic cheese mounded on thick slices of fresh homegrown tomatoes. Chefs on the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express use it for stuffing ripe red tomatoes as a starter for summer meals on the train.”
