Do you know that the PAIRING is the method of which food or mostly CHEESE go well with WINE?
The wine pairing with cheese is a French tradition. The main concept of pairing is that certain elements of wine and food, such as texture and taste, react differently when mixed; and finding the right combination of these will make eating a more pleasurable experience to the palate.
As for wines ...
WHITE OR PINK WINE: soft cheeses: ricotta, feta, mozzarella, cream and goat.
RED WINE: cheddar, manchego, cantal, gruyére, parmesan and the rest of the strong cheeses.
As for bread ...
FRESH CHEESES: whole grains based on grains or fine herbs.
SOFT CORK CHEESES: breads of grains, herbs or spices.
SEMI-SOFT CHEESE: neutral bread like baguette, French or focaccia.
BLUE CHEESE: small pieces of white plan.
HARD CHEESE: white breads.
THE STRONGER THE CHEESE THE MORE BODY SHOULD HAVE THE WINE.
