Cheese truth #5: Cheese makes everything better!
When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
There is a plethora of pairing partners when it comes to mild white cheddar cheese. From sweet fruits like apples and pears, to meats like poultry or pork. Mild white cheddar also goes great with pitas and crackers.
A wine flight is when one tests several small portions of varieties of wine. When preparing a wine and cheese flight start with a mild and pair with a crisp white, then move to older with a hearty red.
The key to the perfect wine and cheese pairing is balance. Make sure neither taste overpowers the other, that each brings out something in the other, and that you enjoy yourself.
