Beer and cheese make a great pair

Beer and cheese make a great pair | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

IT WAS inevitable that Pennsylvania's new breed of cheese-makers would bond with the state's thriving brewers. Artisan creameries and breweries are small, locally-owned businesses with handmade products that typically are unique, full-flavored alternatives to their run-of-the-mill mainstream competitors.

Cranberry Brie Grilled Cheese

Cranberry Brie Grilled Cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

When you start with good ingredients, it feels like nothing can go wrong. Here we have a whole grain sourdough (still warm from my awkwardly early morning grocery run), creamy Brie cheese, whole grain mustard, unsalted butter, and the crown jewel… leftover cranberry sauce!

World’s most expensive cheese board that costs £840 | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

This will really get your goat . . . cheese

This will really get your goat . . . cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

The goat cheese I'm referring to is chèvre; there are many other goat's milk cheeses (feta being the best known), but chèvre is what we here in Canada usually think of as goat cheese.

Asked to Get Slim, Cheese Resists

Asked to Get Slim, Cheese Resists | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
In the centuries that Americans have been making cheese, they have gotten very good at it, producing world-class Cheddars and chèvres, to name just two varieties. But more recently, cheese making has been something of a struggle.

The Cheeselover: A perfect cheese trolley

The Cheeselover: A perfect cheese trolley | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

Cheese trolleys, as I've discovered from previous exchanges, divide cheese lovers. There are those who think no restaurant worth its salt offers anything less than 30 cheeses and others of us (betraying my own preferences) that reckon there's no way most restaurants can keep even 20 in good condition.

Kiwi Meets Goat Cheese : Madame Fromage

Kiwi Meets Goat Cheese : Madame Fromage | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

This week, I’m returning to an old favorite. Sea Smoke was one of the first Pennsylvania cheeses I fell hard for when I moved to Philadelphia seven years ago. Discovering it was a sign to me that the regional cheese scene was going to get interesting. No other cheese from the area had a streak of ash and a delicate bloomy rind quite like this. And the tender crumb, oh the tender crumb.

Salad of pickled pear and blue cheese with walnuts & lardons | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
This combination works every time -- sweet-spiced piquant pears, blue cheese, crisp bacon and walnuts. We use Crozier Blue, a semi-soft sheeps' cheese from the producers of Cashel Blue, but a semi-hard blue would work too.

Fight the End-of-Summer Blues with Berkshire Blue

Fight the End-of-Summer Blues with Berkshire Blue | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
I know, August is National Goat Cheese Month, but there’s no need to limit yourself to just one style of cheese. (If you were, buffalo milk mozzarella and burrata are really far more necessary for pairing with late summer’s bounty of tomatoes and peaches, no?) So go a little wild this weekend and top (or stuff) those burgers with a nice tangy cows-milk blue … like this one from Berkshire Cheese Makers.

Smoked cheddar gougere – Craftsman & Wolves | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Wow, this gougere tasted incredible! I loved the delicate texture of the interior and the bold flavor of the smoked cheddar combined with the slight heat from the flecks of chili peppers. I’m SO glad that Craftsman and Wolves opened up in the neighborhood – I’m a total fan! The people behind the counter are super friendly too.
