Scenario Two: The Cocktail Party
Whether it’s New Year’s Eve or just a fancy party with friends, here are the gourmet cheeses du jour for a special event:
- Camembert Rustique - A runny cheese from France with bold flavour, perfectly paired with slices of fresh artisan baguette.
- Wensleydale with Cranberry - This firm English cheese with a hint of sweetness makes a nice addition, or any English cheese with fruit will do.
- St. Agur - This is a creamy blue cheese, not too strong and very approachable for most people.
Tip: Pick grapes off the stem, wash and dry, then freeze on a lined tray. When served on a cheeseboard they’ll frost over, adding interest to the display. You can also try our recipe for Frosted Autumn Grapes.
