For Marlene who remembered taking a class from me featuring this recipe. Perfect for bridal and baby showers and anytime you need an easy appetizer with WOW! status. A keeper!
This was a featured recipe when Country Gardens magazine came out to my home for a day of photographing my herb garden and making herbal recipes. It is so easy, looks elegant and every time I make it in class, it becomes a student favorite. Sprinkle a few fresh herbs (even parsley looks nice) and edible flowers on top for a beautiful presentation. I think this spread is better than the boursin cheese spread you can buy. The spread is also delicious on crostini or as a dip for veggies.
