TGRWT #10 Danish blue parfait

Just before the deadline I managed to create a dish for They Go Really Well Together. During round #10, hosted by EatFoo(d), we had to combine pineapple and blue cheese. I made a parfait of Danish blue and served it with caramalized pineapple.

I wanted to create a dessert. First thing that came into mind was a parfait. I recently made a strawberryparfait, but a savory one of cheese was a real challenge! The idea was to serve it with caramalized pineapple.

After a short preparation I was ready for the tasting part of this challenge. First of all I like the idea of a savory parfait. It gives the ice a out of the ordinary taste. I’m certainly gonna create more savory ice creams. Together with the sweet caramalized pineapple it really worked as a combination. The sweetness of the pineapple goes well with the specific taste of danish blue. I’m really happy with the result!

Danish blue parfait

Ingredients (serves 3)

120 grams brown sugar (white color)
2 eggs
50 grams Danish blue cheese
200 ml crème fraîche


First of all I made the parfait. Put the 80 grams of sugar together with 80 ml of water in a cooking pot and heat it. Stir two egg yolks. Put the sugarwater over a double boiler and add the yolks while stirring. Let the creamy mixture cool down. Gently fold some Danish blue cheese and crème fraîche into the mixture. Poor the mixture into some small bowls and refrigerate it for about 3 hours.

I served the parfait on top of some caramalized pineapple slices. Cover the pineapple slices in the rest of the brown sugar. And heat them in a frying pan with some butter. After a few minutes you have nicely caramalized pineapple. I added some pineapple juice to the frying pan and created pineapplesyrup.
