Who doesn't love a good cocktail party? I am serving up a homemade Sriracha Parmesan Cheese Spread. This April 5, 2015 Mad Men comes back for the last time. Perhaps like you I have been looking forward to this season for a long time.
This Parmesan Cheese Spread is my inspiration for celebrating the final season of Mad Men. I have scanned through old cookbooks and read old recipe cards from my grandparents who were always throwing cocktails parties during the 60s, and I wanted to serve up something that they would have with a slight twist. They would serve up a dip like this with crackers, or they might even pipe these cheese into small tomatoes. I love this type of of cheese spread because you can make this ahead of time, and then just set it out when you want to get ready for your cocktail party.
If you enjoyed this recipe you may want to check out , this book has many different recipes that were inspired by Mad Men, the TV show. You can also check out all of the other food bloggers and see what they have created to celebrate the 2nd half of the final season of Mad Men.
I hope you enjoy watching the 2nd half of the season as much as I do. I know I will be glued to the TV waiting to see what happens to Don and Peggy. I know I love to serve up a cocktail or even a dish inspired by Mad Men when I watch the house.
