Pecorino and Honey Dip

Aug 30, 2010 by Gabriele Corcos

When you think about appetizers, you really don’t have to go to extreme lengths. Simple ingredients are always the best, keep that in mind. Fresh honey that comes from somebody that has his own bee farm or wildflower honey can be special if some spice is added like crushed pepper or jalapeño is added. I use italian crushed red peppers, and I like to dip my cheese in it. My favorite to dip is pecorino (salted or unsalted) and sometimes I drizzle the honey and pepper onto bruschetta with brie, which is downright delicious .


Serves: 4 Prep time:  5 minutes 

  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup good quality organic honey
  • 8 ounces dry Pecorino, sliced into finger-size bites (recommended: Sardo or Pienza)


1Add the hot pepper flakes to a small bowl and mix with the honey. Serve with the Pecorino.
