About a year ago, when I recreated Fairway’s Artichoke Garlic Cream, I mentioned that we live in a place with access to amazing food. We’re walking distance from Fairway Market, Trader Joe’s, the Union Square Farmers Market and Whole Foods. Having immediate access to all four are what foodie fantasies are made of.
Of the four amazing stores, Whole Foods is closest to us. A friend recently recommended WF’s Truffled Ricotta Asiago Dip. Since I’m a sucker for any and all things truffled, I made sure to stop by the store the following day. The dip with rich and slightly chunky from bits of asiago. I knew that I had to recreate this deliciousness because I simply couldn’t afford frequent trips to Whole Foods.
My version is rich and creamy, with the same slightly chunky consistency. The version that I made is a bit thinner than the original, but still very stable. It will hold up to any cracker, baguette or vegetable. Remember, everything goes with truffles! Enjoy it on a sandwich instead of mayonnaise. You’ll find so many ways to enjoy it… including straight out of the jar with a spoon!
