AussieEncore:  Ooooh, that sounds delicious, I have never had that.  I am thinking that the port turns the blue cheese a red color?  We are having a party the day after Christmas (it’s somewhat of a tradition now with our friends) and we just paired a bunch of wines with different kinds of chocolate – it was kind of a PITA but we have a great port because of this. I may have to try this with the remaining port if there is any…

I love a mature cheddar, a creamy sharp goat cheese, a camembert or a brie, plus a Stilton or a Danish blue.  We put ours with a selection of crackers (normal cream crackers, Hovis wholewheat, a black pepper variety and celery seed crackers), plus onion and pear chutneys, grapes, walnuts and some sea salt.

Figs or figs spread goes great with cheese and wine.

I like to go with a variety of cheese from different countries, with different textures, and made with different kinds of milk (cow, goat, sheep). I loooove an aged Manchego (90+ days) or Gouda (at least 2 years). It’s usually nice to have something mild, soft, and buttery for the less adventurous types. I like small format goat’s milk cheeses for this, most cheese shops have a ton of them. Then it’s nice to have something more adventurous, like a spicy blue, something smoked or soaked in wine, or a funky, earthy, Alpine cheese. Serve with good bread, honey, fig jam, quince paste, and/or almonds. Mmm!
