Fall Cheese Tips from Springbank Cheese Co.
- For the full experience, always bring your cheese up to room temperature. This will allow the texture and flavour to leap throughas the cheese maker meant it to be.
- When it comes to cheese, always eat what you enjoy, enjoy what you experience, and search for new experiences.
- Remember your guests and take them into consideration when choosing your cheese and any pairing ideas.
- Cheese and wine is a great pairing. Cheese and beer, Cheese and Scotch, Cheese and Whiskey are also great pairings.
- Label your selection so your guests/family are not asking you for the name of the cheese.
- Take into consideration flavor, look, texture, and if it is important to you color.
- To maximize shelf life, wrap well in plastic wrap, removing as much air as possible.
- Record your favourites when you taste them by writing them down, or taking a picture and emailing it to yourself. Build a digital (or non-digital) tasting log!
- When pairing, remember to take into account flavour, strength and texture - these all contribute to a great pairing.
- Brie is best when it is runny. If you have not tried it this way, put it on your list!
- Yes - it is okay to mix up a bunch of little pieces of different cheeses - melt them for cooking, put on a burger, make cheese waffles, mix a new fondue blend. Better to experiment than to have it wasted!
