Usually, red wine comes along with the cheeseboard but it doesn’t always make the perfect match. White wines are better with most of the cheeses, such as goat and blue cheeses.
Cheese and bread : the perfect match
Bread is the indispensable partner of cheese. Allow three to four slices or pieces of bread per person. Baguette, whole wheat bread, walnut or raisin bread... there is plenty of choice!
Cheese and fruits : sweet and salty
Fruits: black and white grapes, fresh figs, ...
