This weekend, I wish myself wine and cheese.
This article tells you how to host a wine-and-cheese-pairing party. Sounds stressful.
I’m not adventurous when it comes to cheeses. I can’t stand anything smelly or that looks like it may walk away by itself, or like it’s involved in trials for new antibiotics.
And I can’t drink red wine – I break out in a rash.
So, it’ll be a medium white, with some unremarkable cheeses. Oh and olives. There will be olives.
PS Here’s an article about wine and junk food pairings. The sweet stuff sounds sick-making, but I could go with bacon-wrapped anything with a dry Marsala; and jalapeno poppers with German Pradikat Riesling.
