You can pair cheese with honey following the criterion of contrast, in the attempt to counterbalance the extreme sharpness or sweetness of the cheese, or of similarity. In this way the two ingredients become complementary one another.
You can choose among our honey and cheese gifts:
- CHESTNUT HONEY & BLU DEL MONCENISIO BASKET - Usually (but not always) blue cheese are also fat, with a dense - sometimes sticky on the palate - structure. The combinations with honey here can relate to the structure (for example combining it with a honey with the same “slowness” in the mouth) or aroma.
- ACACIA HONEY & GRANA PADANO BASKET / WILDFLOWER HONEY & PECORINO FILIANO BASKET - For very tasty cheeses (such as sheep cheese or Grana cheese) we can suggest a rich and structured wildflower honey, maybe obtained from fat meadows, with floral notes and hints of animal pastures.
- ORANGE BLOSSOM HONEY & BRUNET CHEESE BASKET - Bloomy rind cheeses could be matched with floral honeys, such as citrus, thyme or thistle honey, if not overly fatty.
