Roquefort Dip with Apple, Endive,
and Celery Hearts

The Best of Gourmet 1999
The Editors of Gourmet, Condé Nast Books,
Random House, New York


This dip is especially attractive served in a hollowed-out head
of Castelfranco radicchio, a white radicchio with loose,
pink-streaked leaves.

Serves 8 as an hors d'oeuvre.

4 ounces fromage blanc or softened cream cheese
(about 1/2 cup)
3 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons medium-dry Sherry
4 ounces Roquefort (about 1 cup crumbled)
2 Belgian endives
12 inner celery ribs with leaves
1 medium head white radicchio (optional)
1 crisp red apple such as Gala or Fuji

If using fromage blanc, in a bowl stir together with milk and Sherry until smooth. If using cream cheese, with an electric mixer beat together with
milk and Sherry until smooth. Crumble Roquefort and gently stir into
mixture (being careful not to break up lumps). Dip may be made 1 day
ahead and chilled, covered.
Have ready a large bowl of ice and cold water. Trim the root ends of
endives and separate leaves. Trim celery to 4- to 6-inch lengths. Remove
any discolored outer leaves from radicchio and trim root end slightly so
radicchio stands upright. Put vegetables in bowl of ice water to crisp
(and to help radicchio leaves open). Let vegetables stand at least 15
minutes and up to 2 hours.
In a colander drain radicchio and shake to remove water. Twist and pull
out center leaves to form a "bowl" for dip. Spoon dip into radicchio or a
small bowl.
In colander drain endive and celery and pat dry. Quarter the apple and
remove core. Cut quarters into thin wedges. Put several ice cubes in
each of 2 wine glasses and stand endive, celery, and apple over ice.
Serve dip with apple, endive, and celery.
