The British Cheese Board with the help of drinks connoisseur
Jilly Goolden has devised new ground-breaking cheese and drink
recommendations for the British nation. For a change, why not try
British Brie and brandy or mature Cheddar and Guinness says
The British Cheese Board has launched this initiative with the
aim of raising awareness of the variety and diversity of British
Cheese and to educate the British public about the most delicious
cheese and drink combinations.
People are always asking for suggestions on cheese and drinks
that will really tantalize their tastebuds says Nigel White,
Secretary of the British Cheese Board. Christmas and New Year
celebrations are the ideal time to be innovative with the food and
drink that people enjoy. By knowing the perfect combinations people
of all ages and lifestyles can discover amazing taste sensations
which they have never experienced before.
By carrying out extensive taste tests Nigel
White and Jilly Goolden have decided on a top
20 British cheese and drinks list
ensuring that there are recommendations for everyone in the
Jilly says of the number one choice, British Brie and brandy,
The combination is absolutely extraordinary. The brandy and brie
seamlessly marry together, creating a soft, seductive, nutty taste
which is ideal as a fireside snack.
Other ideas include Traditional Farmhouse Cheddar with strong dry
cider, white Cheshire and Riesling or mild or medium Cheddar and
fresh English apple juice, perfect for younger family members or
those who want something non-alcoholic.
For the adventurous, the experts recommend trying Mexicana and
dark rum, Caerphilly and white Lambrusco, or why not end the meal
with a sparkling, festive combination white Stilton with
cranberries and Champagne.
