“Extreme” Cheese & the Wines that Love Them
When a cheese marches to the tune of its own drummer, sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect mate. Luckily, It's Not You, It's Brie author Kirsten Jackson held a matchmaking class for this sole purpose. Need a wine pairing for a cheddar/blue hybrid, or our fiesty spring centerfold? Just check the list below.
We didn’t limit it. And we didn’t judge. If a cheese was delicious after being patted down with flavors as oddly harmonious as espresso grounds and lavender, we weren’t going to raise an eyebrow. If a cheese couldn’t decide between being a cheddar or a blue, we were’t going to try to make them. Hell, if a cheese wanted to wear that swan dress that Bjork did to the Oscars one year, or even decide they wanted to be in an open relationship, we wouldn’t judge either. Just as long as they showed up to class tasty and ready to charm.
