Sacrebleu! The France booth, typically a festival favorite among our reporters, surprised us this year. The new Beignet aux Trois Fromages, which you can get for $5.75, might be the most highly debated Food and Wine Festival item this year! At least it is between the DFB team!
This warm beignet filled with three kinds of cheese had three of our reporters disappointed, and one reporter completely in love! Some felt that the beignet’s sweet flavor didn’t mix nicely with the warm cheese filling, which had a gravy-like consistency and flavor.
On the other hand, one reporter was prepared to happily eat (approximately) 100,000 of these cheesy-stuffed beignets. After all, it’s smooth creamy cheese and soft warm dough. How can that combination not be fantastique?
Since it became such a debate, one of our writers went in and gave it a try and she too fell in love!! She said she loved the texture and could eat this over and over again!!
If it’s any consolation, everyone seemed to agree that the cheese on top was tasty. Maybe this dish is best for those that don’t mind a sweet/savory shakeup. But, for those of you that prefer some consistency in your dining, maybe skip this beignet. Oh well, taste is subjective after all! So we want you, our readers, to weigh in! What are your thoughts on this beignet? Do you LOVE it? HATE it? We need all your thoughts!!!
