Real Cheese Vs. Fake Cheese Taste Test

Source: Brightest Young Things NYC

You probably already know the results of this taste test before you read it.

Real cheese and fake cheese are not the same thing. In fact, one is cheese and the other is not cheese. The not cheese doesn’t really taste like cheese. But we wanted to figure out if the perception is reality.

Good King/Facebook

As much as we love a good rosé, pink wine is no longer the hip sip it was a few years ago. Orange wine is now cutting edge — and The Good King Tavern is spotlighting this trendy beverage at “Orange Is the New Black,” tonight’s Cave à Manger event.

Proprietor Chloe Grigri has modeled tonight’s wine and food pairing session on Parisian wine shops that offer nibbles that pair well with the wine a customer has purchased. At tonight’s event, diners will receive a checklist of cheese and charcuterie and a list of featured orange wines to ...

And she’s bringing along some special guests to discuss the ways rosé pairs so well with artisan cheeses and pasture-raised meats.

James, corporate beverage director at Piora and Côte restaurants in New York, ...

Apparently, Cheese, Malaysian Sambal, and Cider Make for Quite a Trio

Source: Philadelphia Magazine » Foobooz

Your average cheese course might include a dollop of fruity preserves or a drizzle of honey to highlight the flavors of the wheel you’re eating. Rarely does anything zestier than a whole grain mustard or garlicky pickle show up alongside your fromage.

But Sate Kampar’s upcoming Cheese and Sambal Dinner will feature one-of-a-kind flavors: Artisan cheeses and bright, spicy Malaysian sauces, all paired with locally made cider.

Sate Kampar chef Ange Branca and local cheesemaker Jamie Png (formerly of Lawrenceville, NJ’s Cherry Grove Farm) got together for their first collaborative dinner last December. On May 9th, the concept is ...
