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.
Beers with a very pronounced hoppy flavour offer an intriguing matchup for delicious tart cheeses such as Extra Old Cheddar.
Ciders are continuously growing in popularity; so naturally, pairing with a marble cheddar cheese just makes sense.
