Michael Landis, our Cheese, Wine & Beer Expert pairs up the Ile de France Goat and Cream Cheesecake with the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Porter, Rouge Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout and the Korbel Brut. The Ile de France Goat and Cream Cheesecake recipe can be found on the Ile de France Cheese web site.
Korbel Brut & Ile de France Goat and Cream Cheesecake The Ile de France Goat Cheese brings out a little bit of the sweetness of the Korbel Brut, enriching the nice citrus flavors. The Korbel Brut lets the Ile de France goat cheese keep its nice tangy flavors but mellows out the herbs where you get a nice hint but it's not interfering with the overall great flavors of the Cheesecake.
Sierra Nevada Stout & Ile de France Goat and Cream Cheesecake The Sierra Nevada Stout brings out the creaminess of the Ile de France Goat Cheese, while the Goat Cheese sweetens the stout and balances out the rich flavors of both.
