blue cheese and caramelized onion dip

Dazzle guests with this luscious and rich dip from the Lesley Stowe Fine Foods Cookbook. This easy-to-prepare spread mixes the saltiness of blue cheese with the sweetness of caramelized onions and is the perfect accompaniment to Lesley’s delicious raincoast crisps in Original, Rosemary Raisin Pecan or Cranberry Hazelnut.

ingredients

½ medium onion thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup mayonnaise
¾ cup sour cream
3 oz blue cheese (Roquefort, Danish blue or Stilton)
6 oz cream cheese
4 tsp fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

instructions

Heat the olive oil in a small sauté pan on medium-low. Add onion, cover and cook until deep golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Cool. Whisk together mayonnaise and sour cream in a medium bowl. Add the blue cheese and cream cheese and mash with a rubber spatula until smooth. Stir in the caramelized onion and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready.



This recipe was created by Lesley Stowe – the owner and creator of the raincoast crisps, acclaimed chef, cookbook author and entertaining expert.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
