Posts Tagged ‘Cheese’
We're used to seeing wine and cheese tasting parties, so I decided to mix it up and throw a beer and cheese tasting party. And here's why I did it... Beer brings a different vibe to a party, a little more casual. Beer goes with almost anything, so it's actually easier to pair beer with cheese. And finally, I'm more of a novice in the world of beer so it was fun for me to learn
I recommend throwing a beer and cheese tasting party if your guests don't know each other well. Tastings work as excellent conversation starters. "What'd you think of the manchego?" "I thought it was a little strong but tasty."
As the holidays approach, Strongbow hard cider asked us to come up with a second party food pairing (our first pairing was our quick and easy aioli recipe).
We chose to pair our pepper parmesan crisps recipe with the hard cider because we love the combination of apples and cheese. The cider brings a tangy, tart, appley-flavor, and the cheese brings a salty, unctuous richness that stands up well to the sharpness in the cider. Both play off each other effortlessly.
We created these cheese mice for our post about what to serve at Grumpy Cat's 2nd birthday. These cheese wedges are super cute, super kid-friendly, and super easy to do!
