The Truth About Cheese and Wine

Recommended Posts

Is beer or even cider a better match than wine?

Not better, but highly enjoyable. I could parse them; the beers, the ciders, but I prefer to let you taste, say, a dry cider with a middle-aged chevre or Catalan Garrotxa or an Asturian Queso de Vare. A Pilsener with a Torta del Casar or a Belgian Chimay; a sweet cider with a Livarot or a Somerset Cheddar. These are each felicitous as regards my palate, but what about yours? Heck, I love cold Calvados with raw milk Camembert. THERE ARE NO RULES. Nothing is married to anything; that's all a bunch of subjective stuff when so-and-so says this goes best with this and here's why. I'm just not down with that.
