Delicate Onion Flavor

Easy to grow and available to buy year-round, chives are a welcome flavor-addition to a variety of recipes. Best when used raw, cooks should be careful not to lose the delicate flavor and vibrant hue of this fresh herb by adding them in last if cooking chives is necessary in a recipe.

First up is our Cheese and Chive Challah. The traditional yeasted egg bread is enriched even more by adding cheese to the dough. We love the flavor of fontina, but Gruyère or another Swiss cheese would also work.
