  • 1/2 pound of assorted cheeses (Cheddar, Asiago, Romano, Parmesan, Monterey Jack, Colby, Swiss, etc...)
  • 1/4 cup of dry white wine (or more, depending on desired texture)
  • 1/2 a large clove of garlic , peeled and roughly chopped
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • Optional: Chopped herbs for garnish


  • Grate cheeses and add to the bowl of a work processor fitted with a metal blade. Add remaining ingredients and fix lid onto the food processor. Process until you have a spreadable consistency. Check the texture. If you want it runnier, add a splash of white wine and process again. Scrape into a bowl or a ramekin. Cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve, up to a week.
  • If desired, garnish with chopped herbs.
