Cheese and Chocolate are a fermented match made in heaven! On the surface these two foods seem quite different, but they share the magic of fermentation as a common root. Cheese is made from milk that is fermented and coagulated into curd, and chocolate is made from seeds that are fermented in their own pulp before being dried, ground, and transformed into bars of chocolate.
Sure you've heard of pairing cheese with wine, but have you tried pairing with cider? Here in the United States we're in a golden age of cidermaking, which is just winemaking by another name. In some cider producing parts of Europe that double as notable cheesemaking regions, cider and cheese are thick as thieves.
