Gorgonzola díOro with Shaved Apples and Truffle Honey. This dish will slam your tongue. The meal has been progressing on a path where subtle and simple flavors build on each other, each dish getting more and more exciting. Just when you think youíve reached the crescendo, you try this dish and are blown away. The obvious culprit would be the cheese, but itís really the combination of ingredients that gets you. The truffle flavor is so incredibly complementary, rounding out the sharpness of the gorgonzola. Your tongue gets very busy processing the cheese, at the same time the truffle fills your mouth and nose with its smell. Donít forget the honey though. The sweetness binds the flavors and mellows them a touch. The texture of the bread is crisp, light and essentially perfect. Itís not hard or brittle. Somehow itís airy and crispy at the same time. The apple is subtle, sweet, soft, crispy but somehow not lost in the dish. The entire combination is like an exclamation point to the meal.
