Home Cheese how to
Gourmet is easy with Ile de France – no reservations required! Enjoy a stress-free romantic meal at home with your sweetie with these easy courses. Just add candles!
First Course – make some green space on your plate with a simple, fresh-tasting salad, accented with fine fromage. Often called salade verte in French restaurants, green salads are the perfect way to start a meal. This French Green Bean & Shallot Salad with Roquefort Cheese recipe is perfect. It's flavorful enough to get the meal started, and hearty enough to serve as a side dish, too.
Main Entrée: Seafood has a light and lively flavor that's amplified with cheese. Salmon and Ile de France Goat Cheese make a perfect couple. A refreshing dish that's satisfying but not too filling, this Grilled Salmon and Tomatoes with Comté, Goat Cheese and Dill is a perfect choice for Valentine's savoring. Serve Potatos au gratin or one of our simple vegetable and cheese pairings on the side.
For dessert, look no further than this month's featured white chocolate and cheese pairings. Cheese and chocolate are delectable, rich and savory – what better day to indulge in both than Valentine's Day?
One more thing - what romantic meal would be complete without wine? Our wine pairing guides will help you find something just right to help celebrate. A champagne toast is a great way to start the meal, too!
