Recipe Rating: 3.88355
Serves 6

Triple-crème cheese is a delightful match for summer berries tossed with honey and fragrant fresh lavender. Serve this unexpected cheese dish at spring showers and brunches.

  • 1 (6.3-ounce) package Hervé Mons St. Nuage
  • 1 cup blueberries, raspberries and/or blackberries, halved if large
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon very finely chopped fresh lavender or thyme leaves
  • 1 baguette, sliced, or crackers for serving

Place cheese on a platter. Cut out a small wedge, pulling it away to reveal the inside of cheese and just arrange it next to the wheel. (This just helps cheese warm up a bit faster.) Let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, gently fold together berries, honey and lavender. Let sit for 10 minutes.  

Spoon berry mixture over cheese and garnish with almonds. Serve with bread or crackers.
