No matter how many cheeses are served at a tasting, it helps to know their flavor intensity. The objective: To make sure each cheese is appreciated at its fair value from the first bite to the last.
For starter, we opt for milder cheeses with delicate aromas, whether fresh, soft or firm cheeses. Plain or herbs seasoned crackers and breads are a good pairing with these cheeses.
Here, the flavors and aromas intensify. The vegetal, woody or animal notes are more present. Fruits and nuts are a good complement for these cheeses.
The 3rd service brings fullest flavors and textures. Blue cheeses, aged cheddars and other cheeses de garde disclose their gourmet aromas of grilled nuts, brown butter, candied fruit or caramel. Pairing it with chocolate and jellies contribute to making it a remarkable meal closure.
