Cheese Pairings


Fun Fact: For every 5 people in Wisconsin there is 1 dairy cow.

I found a cheese lovers paradise site. It’s called the “Wisconsin Cheese Cupid,” the new cheese and adult beverage pairing site which is run by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board can be helpful with any kind of cheese. The way it works is that you pick a category of drinks (red wine, white wine, beer, liquor) and then select a sub-category (brandy, port, scotch) and the “Cupid” produces a collection of complementary cheeses for your beverage of choice.

This site has a bit more simplistic cheese than I prefer, being as I like my cheese hard to pronounce and a little on the smelly side. But it is easy to use and will point you in the direction of what genre of cheese to lean towards. It is a great tool to use if you tend to be stuck in a Cheddar rut. One suggestion is to put your computer on mute to avoid the creepy female voice over.
