What does it mean…

…when I say in Fromage of the Day that a cheese can pair with two wines that are polar opposites in temperament and flavor?  It’s a great indicator that a cheese has several components to its flavor and some of them are expressed in roughly equal dimension, so a different beverage can highlight one over the other.  For instance a great alpine cheese may have a strong nutty overtone that can blend well against a hearty red wine yet also have a distinct sweetness that will make a good companion to a hoppy west coast IPA or a bone dry white win.  That’s why some Fromages of the Day seem unusually versatile.  Nutty: The Joy of Cheese November Events begin Tuesday the 9th at Clerkenwell.  For details on the entire series, visit http://wp.me/pTYGb-8h

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
