I went out for a cheese and wine tasting last night — the problematic matter of pairing cheeses with red wines — and I have to admit life seems rosier today. This is what I learned:
- I love cheese. I love it even more when you call it “cheeses.” That means there’ll be more of it and it will be even tastier.
- I don’t love wine as much, but I think that’s just because we buy bad wine. If you buy good wine and drink it with cheeses, it’s quite enjoyable.
- Gouda and manchego are particularly delicious. Yum.
- Two ounces of cheese, composed of tiny bits of 10 different cheeses artfully arranged on a plate plus five glasses of wine and a handful of almonds and a fig or two makes a fine dinner. Port and a Vermont blue cheese to finish up. Home by 10.
