Aged Or Ageless: Wine and Cheese
Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures. --M. F. K. Fisher
Do you have favorite wine and cheese matches? One of mine: a garlic cheddar sold at our local farmer's market by Spring Hill that is, in the words of my teen, "the bomb" when melted. It makes an outrageously good grilled cheese sandwich, best paired with a rich Syrah. Another favorite cheese is the Humboldt Fog--a melt-in-your-mouth goat cheese with a ribbon of edible ash, a chewy crust and a sublime gooey layer between crust and interior. Pair this with Pinot for happiness.
What could be better? Try serving this Sundried Tomato, Parsley, Rosemary and Parmesan Bread with your next wine and cheese pairing!
By the way, the quote above was from Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher. She was an American food writer who was born in 1908 and died in 1992. She was a founder of the Napa Valley Wine Library, wrote 27 books on food, wine and travel and was as influential as Julia Child, though not as famous.
Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.
There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk.--M. F. K. Fisher
