Cheese Pairings

 

Salted Whiskey Caramel
Cheese: Sheep’s Milk Cheese or White Cheddar
You will be amazed by how the fruity yet smokey whiskey finish of this caramel is brought out by a nutty Basque style Sheep’s milk cheese or a traditional English Style white cheddar.

Beer & Pretzel Caramel
Cheese: Aged Cheddar
It’s a natural—a hearty, aged cheddar as a pair for these salty, crunchy and less sweet caramels.  Add another dimension and try a naturally smoked gouda for a smokey and sweet experience.

Sea Salt Caramel
Cheese: Aged Gouda or Parmesan
The traditional sweetness with a touch of saltiness of these caramels pairs well with an aged gouda or parmesan style.  The naturally occurring tyrosine crystals found in both of these cheeses are reminiscent of the sea salt crystals in the caramels along with the lovely sweet finish of both of these cheeses.

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel
Cheese: Gorgonzola or Triple Cream Cheese
This decadent caramel pairs perfectly with a rich creamy gorgonzola or a full flavored Triple Cream cheese.  The saltiness of either of these cheeses is a great counterpoint to the deeply rich cocoa flavor of these caramels.

 


The only thing better than a good, savory cheese?  Washing it down with a sweet, decadent caramel!
