Cheese and conserve pairings … for the festive season and beyond
Christmas is nearly here and we’ve got some fantastic cheese and conserve pairings that are sure to delight your guests. Bring out your favourite festive tableware, turn on some tunes and start arranging you next cheeeboard.
Balanced, fruity aromas with moderate sweetness like Bonne Maman Raspberry Conserve pair beautifully with rounded, double cream cheeses like Fromager d’Affinois Le Fromager.
Blue cheeses like Fromager d’Affinois Bleu are nicely complimented by honeyed aromas like Bonne Maman Apricot Conserve.
Goat and sheep milk cheeses such as Fromager d’Affinois Florette and Fromager d’Affinois Brebicet have a sharper acidity that will cut through the sweetness of aromas like Bonne Maman Strawberry Conserve or Bonne Maman Fig Conserve. Add roasted hazelnuts and fruitier accompaniments like grapes and juicy pears and serve with a crisp white wine like Chardonnay, Riesling or Semillon.
