We’re exploring the rich, rustic flavors of California’s wine country this month, and when it comes to foolproof wine and food pairings, cheese is your best friend. That’s why we created our Guide to Cheese, with everything you need to know about selecting and storing cheese and our favorite ways to enjoy it.
You’ll find an overview of the many types of cheese, from fresh and soft cheeses (think ricotta and Brie) to hard aged and blue varieties. We also share some of our favorite combinations for cheese plates any time of year, plus tips for building your own. Finally, get expert advice from cookbook author Janet Fletcher and learn how to make everyone’s favorite decadent dip: fondue!
