When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
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.
Pairing is all about balance, so when you are enjoying a beer with a lighter taste profile it's important to make sure that the cheese doesn't overpower the beer. Pair delicate beers with young, delicate cheeses like mild cheddar.
BBQ chicken, steak, or fish and set up an array of toppings including sour cream, salsa, guacamole and Black Diamond shredded cheese.
