Favorite Links - Cheese

 

 

American Cheese Society
www.cheesesociety.org
If you live for great cheese, you can join the farmstead and artisanal cheesemakers in the ACS as an “enthusiast” and attend the annual conference and world-renowned cheese competition, culminating in the Festival of Cheeses in July.

Cheddar, Wine and Beer Pairings
Good content on pairing different classic and flavored cheddars with different wines and beers. Brews are matched specifically to the products of Cabot, an excellent Vermont producer; but applicable to any cheddars.  If you and your posse are cheddaristas, this will enable you to put together an enjoyable evening.

Nibble Tips

For variety on your cheese plate, serve dried fruits and shelled almonds, walnuts, and pecans in addition to fresh fruits.
