Cheese and wine and all things fine
Easy blue cheese soufflé
They’re light and delicious – who isn’t a fan of the soufflé? We tackled this savoury blue cheese soufflé and, boy, was it grand. If we can do it, you can too. It is well worth the effort when it’s time to tuck in. This soufflé goes down best when served with a little glass of port – we like the De Krans pink port and the more traditional Vintage Port from Overgaauw.
So you have guests coming over and you’re looking for a gourmet snack? Look no further. This gooey baked camembert served with crispy baguette slices is a sure-fire winner. We paired this a glass of sweet Fairview La Beryl Blanc Straw Wine. Divine.
Three cheese and tomato quiche
A farm-style recipe at heart, this three cheese quiche is bursting with cheesy goodness. It’s not very often you get to have cheddar, Brie and Parmesan in one delightful dish. Serve with a glass of MCC to cleanse the palate of all that cheesiness.
If you are hungry for a cheese feast, then a raclette is the way to go. Three cheers for the Swiss for making oozing, melted cheese an acceptable dinner option. We made these cured ham and mozzarella skewers on the raclette. Neat, hey? Raclette goes well with the bright freshness characteristic in Riesling – we like this Fairview Darling Riesling.
