A few coworkers and I got together over the past week to indulge in a wine and cheese tasting. The two most organized of the group (of course that includes me) planned the menu and wine pairings to a T. We used the Dairy Farmers of Canada cheese book as a guideline and today I’m going to show off the amazing-ness that was our cheese and wine party.
All cheese flights were served with a variety of sides including: baguette, fresh berries, dates, dried apricots, dried cherries, olives, preserves, cucumber, apple, and walnuts
Cheeses: Baked brie drizzled with honey + Havarti + Colby
Wine: Pinot Noir Rose (Cono Sur Bicicleta)
Cheeses: Boursin Cranberry & Pepper + Gorgonzola + Aged Cheddar
Wine: Sauvignon Blanc (Tabali)
Cheeses: Camembert + Fresh Herb Havarti + Jalapeno Smoked Gouda
Wine: Malbec (Bousquet) + Syrah (Le Versant)
My favourite cheeses had to have been the aged cheddar and the brie, and my favourite wine the Malbec.
