I don't think I have ever turned down any cheese at any time ... a good cracker, wine and cheese such a heavenly combo.
I had a moment when I was 16 sitting at a family party squeezed into a corner alone (I wanted to be somewhere anywhere but there) ...then something
happened I found myself enjoying the smell of something pungent
something nutty and so stinky, sitting in front of me was a table filled with cheeses wines fruits and crackers.
Then that was pretty much it for me wine and cheese... hooked I was!
I haven't had many chances to enjoy cheese and paired wine that way I did that night, but it's always been a very sweet memory for me.
Everyone has their own taste buds cheese is personal.
LOVE a good English Farmhouse Cheddar still trying to figure out what to sip with it??
Gorgonzola .....with Valpollicella or a Chianti = heaven to me.
Auricchio Provolone with Barolo. With garlic bruschetta topped with roasted red peppers in a very good EV olive oil.
Chavrie with Italian Prosecco
One of my very favorite things that I have eaten with cheese recently
mixed baby spring greens.. roasted beets .. dried cranberry.. honey-roasted pecans or walnuts.. roasted sun flower seeds.. thinly sliced red onion
..and chavrie salad with a raspberry dressing ...... so very very good.
It's naughty and personal.
