Five Leaves | Brooklyn, NY

House Made Ricotta — figs, fresh thyme, honeycomb, maldon sea salt served with fruit-nut bread.

Pure elegance.

I stared in awe at the bundle of house made ricotta, decorated with fresh honeycomb and thyme.

With slices of fig flowering around it, this spread was already sprawling onto the bed of nut bread in my mind.

The first bite, a hint sea salt with the promised sweet indulgence of nature’s gifted honey.

I was delighted by the surprising crunch of honeycomb crystals, embedded in each bite.

A light touch, a smooth caress, a romantic take on an ordinary cheese.

Charming splendor.

May I please have another?
