It's here! We have waited patiently and sometimes impatiently for the Canadian summer to hit and it's here! Thoughts of lazy afternoons poolside or at a cottage...easy meals and our favorite beverage. And what could be easier than a cheeseboard and a few bottles of your favorite libation?
Today, we are going to put together a selection with a tropical feel.
First up is Brie Coco by Alexis de Portneuf. To quote their cheesemaker: “I have two passions: Coconut and brie, happy union… an indulgence for big and small occasions. By adding a tropical touch to this triple cream brie, our master cheese makers will delight even the most demanding gourmet.”
A bloomy rind, triple cream brie, this has the distinctive creamy texture and nutty, mushroomy flavours of a brie with a hint of coconut..not overwhelming for those of you who aren't crazy about coconut but just a little "Je ne sais quoi" that will have you going back again. Let's pair this with a new product at C'est Cheese Please!, Tropical Mango Chutney from Yummies in a Jar.
Next on our Tropical-themed cheeseboard, we will put a piece of Stilton Mango and Ginger. This is always a favorite, the base white Stilton is blended with the sweetness of mango and the spiciness of ginger. And to finish off this board, a piece of Gorgonzola Cremosa would be perfect.
Be sure to include some nuts and fruit (grapes, blackberries and kiwi would look pretty) And for crackers, we have a new cracker exclusive to C'est Cheese Please!, it looks like an Italian Pizzelli cookie but is a cracker, firm enough to handle the cheese without being overwhelming. Everything described here is in stock and waiting for you at C'est Cheese Please!
To finish off, why not pair this board with a lovely sparkling Rose? Crisp and cold, pretty in pink and you will be dancing around just like the famous Carmen Miranda. Check out this YouTube link:
