Champagne and Cheese Pairings for any New Years Soirée

Friday, December 27th, 2013

However you choose to celebrate the new year, there are 2 elements that are sure to add the party factor: cheese and Champagne!

Cheese plates are, by nature, social foods which encourage people to circulate around the room, taste, and engage with each other over, “what is the name of that delicious cheese?!”

Champagne is a nice touch to remind everyone that they’re here to celebrate a special occasion or to enjoy life’s little excesses (in moderation, of course). Serve these 2 at a party and you’ll have an instant hit! If you need some quick Champagne and cheese pairing advice, we’ve got a great article that will give you the pairings for our brie, goat, Fol Epi, and St. Agur:
