The aroma can be associated with winter holiday seasons, but apple cider is delicious any time of year when paired with mild cheddar cheese.
Start mild and finish strong: When assembling a cheese tray, arrange cheeses from mildest to strongest.
Part-skim mozzarella has such a light flavour it can be paired with a wide range of foods. Meats like beef, pork or poultry are just as fitting as pasta, basil, olives, or sardines.
Be careful to not store cheese with strong-smelling foods because the cheese will breathe in the odors and absorb it – this can alter the taste and spoil the cheese.
