Directions:
1.Fondue:: Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute. Add cream and simmer until reduced by half. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to LOW: Add cheese, bit by bit, whisking as you go. As 1 piece melts, add another, until no cheese remains. Then add thyme and stir to combine.

2.Asparagus:: Fill a deep frying pan halfway full with water and bring to a boil. Add asparagus to the boiling water and add salt and olive oil; boil for 6 minutes. Remove asparagus to a sheet pan or plate to cool, and place in the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes. Then chop into bite-size pieces, perfect for dipping.

Roasted Asparagus alternative:: Break off the tough ends of the asparagus and, if they're thick, peel them. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, then toss to coat the asparagus completely. Spread the asparagus in a single layer and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Roast the asparagus for 25 minutes, until tender but still crisp.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is from Pair Restaurant in Ravenna , a Seattle neighborhood. It serves this creamy, blue-veined German cheese as a silky soup, kept warm by a tea light. (Cambozola is a cross between camembert and gorgonzola -- it's a mild, creamy blue cheese.) Dip bread or crostini, pears and apples, and veggies like asparagus. Serve with a frisee salad and glass of white wine. It is incredibly delicious!
