Sonoma Farm makes Mediterranean-influenced artisan products in small batches. Their olive oils and vinegars were a Top Pick Of The Week. Recently, we tried other products and found the Asiago & Parmesan Dip to be another winner.

A bit too thin to be viewed as a traditional dip, Sonoma Farm California Asiago & Parmesan Dip is really a sauce. Name aside, we can’t nitpick about the flavor, which is pleasantly pungent with herbs in the finish.

Made from only Parmesan and Asiago cheeses, extra virgin olive oil and spices, it has the consistency of a pesto. You can use it like a pesto too: Top a dish of pasta with a couple of spoonfuls (like pesto, a little goes a long way!) and enjoy.

The label suggests dipping crackers and raw veggies, but we spread it on some thick, crusty bread as well as atop grilled chicken breasts. Then:

  • Dress a sandwich by adding some of the dip into a dollop of mayo.
  • Baste fish or shrimp.
  • Spread atop a steak.
  • Spoon some into scrambled eggs.
  • Make a white pizza: Substitute the dip for the sauce on pizza and top with veggies such as zucchini, artichoke and eggplant and top with shredded mozzarella.
  • Here’s a spin on a Caprese sandwich that’s perfect for a summer picnic: Slice a ciabatta roll (or other Italian bread) and spread a tablespoon of Sonoma Farms Asiago & Parmesan Dip onto the top half. Add slices of mozzarella, a few sliced tomatoes and some basil leaves before taking your first delicious bite.

    Purchase the dip at You’ll want to buy extra for gifts and stocking stuffers. At $7.99 per 8-ounce jar, it may seem pricey. But there’s a lot of expensive cheese in each jar, and a little goes a long way.
