Very flavorful. I used Provolone cheese and dried Italian seasoning instead of fresh basil. We used Bosc pears and apples for dippers. I did add about 1/4 c more wine to thin it out a bit. This made the consistency perfect for dipping the fruit.
Flavor is wonderful; we had some trouble with the texture. Ours was thick and stretchy and difficult to dip. Once applied to the bread, no complaints. We used Provolone cheese. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008.
