Comté Carpaccio with Walnut Oil


  • Comté Cheese
  • Mesclun salad
  • White wine or champagne vinegar
  • Walnut oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Walnuts
  • Chives

This delicious combination – which is more of a method than an exact recipe – comes from Eric Lefebvre, crémier at the Fromagerie de Paris.

    1. Cut the Comté into paper-thin slices (10 slices per person).
    2. Toss the mesclun with a drizzle of vinegar and walnut oil, and season with salt and pepper.
    3. Place a mound of mesclun in the center of each serving plate. Overlap 10 Comté slices on each plate, propping them against the salad.
    4. Sprinkle a few walnuts around each plate, along with a few drops of walnut oil.

Bon appétit!
