Cooks&Books&Recipes Editors’ Notes:
Since I love Brussels sprouts and blue cheese, I couldn’t wait to try this recipe for blue cheese roasted Brussels sprouts. And I was not disappointed: the result was soft brussels sprouts in a roasted-crunchy and tangy-cheesy exterior.
My photograph of this undeniably delicious dish? Uninviting. Because I’m not a food photographer. I’m a food eater. So when Jessie Kaufman of Jessie Kaufman Photography offered to cook a recipe I selected and send a photo of the finished dish to me, I couldn’t jump fast enough. Her photo gives the dish its due. If you haven’t seen her food photos, or her portraiture and travel photos, you need to head over to her site now. This minute. She’s also on Twitter and Facebook.
