Wine & Cheese – An Education

Standard

Happy Wine Wednesday!

I’m still alive! I’m just enjoying summer and only blogging when it feels right, ya know?

You may have realized by now that I am a huge fan of Thrillist. I love their candid accounts on things I really want to know… or even things I didn’t know that I wanted to know.

Still with me?

Having conducted in-home wine tastings for 10 years, I know a thing or two about wine and cheese. You can get a simple list of cheese and wine pairings here.

One of the things that I found that stressed some hosts out was how to cut the cheese to go with the wine. To be honest, as much as I love it, I’m no expert on cheese. The point of the wine tastings was to keep it simple and to focus on the wine and education. I’d tell my host to cut into bite-size pieces. It’ll be easy to serve and just the right size for tasting.

But if you want to know the “proper” way to cut and serve cheese, check out this article from Thrillist:

How to Cut the Cheese Like a Frenchman

Overwhelmed? I am. I may have to have a cheese-tasting party just to practice. (Or to try all of those delectable cheeses!) Maybe have everyone bring one type of cheese and I’ll supply the bread and wine? Sound like a plan? Who’s in?

Want to learn more about wine? This is a fun and direct approach, also from Thrillist:

This is How You Talk About Wine

(Or How Not to Embarrass Yourself When Talking about Wine)

I love it. ALL good advice.

Enjoy!

Cheers~
Carrie
