  • Apple, Walnut and Cinnamon

    Apple, Walnut and Cinnamon

    My homage to mom’s apple pie. Apple and cinnamon are a perfect pair and the walnuts add texture. Try breathing in through your mouth at the end of a mouth full to get a nice cool cinnamon burst.

    Pear two ways, grated to give the bread moisture and cut into sections to give your mouth a “ooh what was that”. Pear is subtle, and the pecans add a creamy background to support. Try it with some blue cheese, but instead of having the blue cheese on top of the bread turn it over and eat it with the cheese down on your tongue so your olfactory is not initially overwhelmed.
