If you’re on a quest to find the perfect items to accompany your amazing artisan cheese, you have found the right place! Continue reading for five amazing suggestions of things to pair with cheese that will make your cheeseboard a stunner! We’re pretty sure, the last one may surprise you but is definitely something you need to try!
🥖 1. A 'vehicle' for the cheese
Something that always fits on a cheese board is what we refer to as the ‘vehicle’ of the cheese, often providing a bit of crunch and simply aiding the process of getting the cheese from the board and into your mouth. Great examples are fresh baguette, lavosh or crackers.
🍯 2. Something on the sweet side
Pastes and honey are also great additions to a cheeseboard. Choose something that’s pretty soft in its flavouring so it doesn’t overpower the beautiful cheese. Great examples are quince paste or some locally sourced honey (especially delicious with blue cheese!)
🥜 3. A change of texture
A bit of crunch never goes wrong either, if you look for something with a bit of texture to add to the cheeseboard some natural nuts are a great choice! Or roasted and salted, just be careful with any flavoured nuts so they don’t overpower!
🍇 4. Something carefully selected
Fruit can work well too, and add a bit of colour! However, be careful with what you pick! Choose wisely, berries like strawberries and blueberries work well, as do muscatels and pear! Fruit to avoid however is dried apricot and green apple, they overpower the cheese!
🍫 5. The wild card
Chocolate is yummy with cheese, and bound to impress any guest! But the same golden rule goes here, choose your chocolate wisely to make sure it doesn’t overpower your delicious artisan cheese! After all, the cheese is the star of the cheeseboard and should not shadowed by anything else!
