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:

Enjoy your New Year’s Celebrations!

Thanksgiving is fast approaching- have you finalized your list of side dishes? Who doesn’t loves a side dish that includes a bit of delicious cheese goodness. Nutritious veggies complemented with tangy cheese can be the best of both worlds! This recipe for shallot balsamic glazed green beans with goat cheese made by Brianne was too good not to share! You can find tasty recipes for desserts as well on her blog Cupcakes and Kale Chips.
“I suppose my palate has gotten more used to fresher ingredients than the processed stuff that we were all raised on. So I have actually made this green bean dish at home several times…” -Brianne

This ingenious cheese infused recipe we rounded up, comes from Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking! Check out her recipe for Brie-stuffed mushrooms and more on her blog! Gaby is a fellow cheeselover AND is a sucker for fresh squeezed juices!
“Two of my favorite things about Thanksgiving (obviously they both are food related) are baked Brie and stuffed mushrooms. So one night, when I was dreaming about food (that’s a pretty frequent occurrence) I imagined these Brie Stuffed Mushrooms and topped with an herb breadcrumb mixture. Jackpot. I knew I had to make them and that’s exactly what happened.” -Gaby
