For those of you who think that wine is the ultimate beverage to pair with cheese, think again.
I’m not hating on wine. I LOVE wine, but beer has an equally deserving place at the side of your favorite cheeses.
Cheese for me is heaven. It satisfies my love for everything savory. I would seriously take a big hunk of cheese over dessert any day. Weird, I know. I recently read Cheese & Beer by Janet Fletcher – the perfect intro level book for beer and cheese pairing, which inspired me to write this post. If you’re really interested in the topic, I would highly recommend it – great pictures and fantastic, straight forward advice.
It is sooooo much more. Firstly, because I have a weird obsession with making each bite in a sandwich the same, aka doing it the right way. Secondly, remember my favorite nearly-no knead bread? Well this time I added rosemary and whole garlic cloves before kneading ’cause I’m crazy like that. Lastly, in case you aren’t convinced, I went ahead and made my own mayo. I found a practically fool proof recipe which has kind of made my life. I know I exaggerate a touch, but I am truly a mayo fiend. I am that creepy person who dips her french fries in mayo, slathers it on sandwiches, and requests extra at restaurants. Ew, I know, I’m the worst.
