Pairing Information


Below are some of our favorite pairings, trust your palate, experiment...

 

Some Guiding Principles:

  • Plan on 1 ounce per cheese per person
  • Taste cheese by first looking at external appearance — then feel the inside texture, smell it, and finally taste the flavor
  • Bring to room temperature 1 hour before serving
  • Try contrasting textures
  • Light Cheeses compliment light flavors
  • Balance heavy cheese with more vibrant flavors
