WINE AND CHEESE PAIRING

“I drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.” – Madam Lilly Bollinger

“Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.” — Benjamin Franklin

Cheese be with You !

I am in the process of getting to know my cheese and wine … this is a product of research but not of my taste … this is a work in progress … in time I will edit this … it was once said – there are no absolutes in this … it is about personal taste .
