Sunday Night Special
Beer and Cheese Pairing
169 cheeses! 169 beers! 169 weeks! It's a beer and cheese odyssey!
Scoats's wonderful wife gave him a copy of Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese: A Guide to Wedges, Recipes, and Pairings by Tenaya Darlington. The author lists 169 artisan cheeses and Scoats wants to try them all. He suspects that he is not the only one. To keep things interesting we will pop around the book, serving a different cheese every Sunday until we taste them all.
Week Eight: 29 March 2015
Stichelton, page 174.
Raw cow milk bleu cheese from England. Delicate veins of blue-green in a rusty-colored, orange-brown rind. Spicy and savory, with a long lasting caramel like sweetness. We are accompanying it with candied bacon, fig jam, and thyme oil.
Shiner 106 Birthday Beer Chocolate Stout
Tenaya recommends a chocolate beer with this one. And they don't get much more chocolaty or better than Shiner's Birthday Beer. It's like chocolate cake in a glass. ABV 5%
