A Cheesy Story
It took two people with higher education a certain lapse of time to fit these cheeses in the cheese drawer so that it could be slid back into place in the refrigerator. It felt like one of those extra-credit exercises given on a Friday afternoon just before vacation. I guess this would have been geometry class. We won’t mention how much time went by before we actually realized this is a cheese drawer.
As I ate my meal mainly composed of fruit, I began to pair the fruit and cheese. (I did have to pare the pear a bit where there were bruises.) I have seen many a guide to wine and cheese pairing, but never one for fresh fruit. My opinion is that Comté goes well with apple and pear goes nicely with Roquefort, but what to have with a banana? Yogurt is a good idea, maybe mascarpone would be ideal, but chèvre had to do for tonight. Maybe hardcore frugivores don’t eat cheese. But who could live in France and not eat cheese?
