Wine, Cheese and Cocktails

Sorry! to have disappeared but two weeks without my kids (thanks grandma!) and you do manage to sneek off !  My hubby and I have been celebrating our freedom by having of our own personal restaurant week... okay so maybe its been WEEKS but are you really counting?

Anyhow, translation: Food, Wine and Cheese anywhere we could get a table! 

Are you a wine and cheese lover? If not don't be worried! There is a wine and a cheese for everyone.

Here are some quick tips:
  • White wines match best with soft cheeses and stronger flavors.
  • Red wines match best with hard cheeses and milder flavors.
  • Fruity and sweet white wines (not dry) and dessert wines work best with a wider range of cheeses.
  • The more pungent the cheese you choose, the sweeter the wine should be.
