From premium aged imported specialties like Gold Label Switzerland Swiss Cheese to American favorites like Cheddar and Monterey Jack, Boar’s Head has an assortment of more than 50 delectable cheese varieties to please even the most discerning palates. Pairing Perfection Boar’s Head shares a few tips for creating the ultimate cheese board online and at home:
Cheese Flavors and Texture: When pairing, select cheeses that are contrasting in taste and texture. Balance the sweet with the strong and the firm with the creamy. To add contrast, include Gold Label Switzerland Swiss Cheese, a bold and nutty variety with earthy notes. This incredibly balanced cheese is crafted in Switzerland by seasoned cheese masters and aged for over 120 days.
Add in a Mixture of Meats: Nothing pairs with premium cheeses like charcuterie – the art of smoking and curing meats. A crowd pleasing cheese board should include a Boar’s Head specialty meat such as Bianco D'Oro Italian Dry Salame or Prosciutto Di Parma.
Accent with Accoutrements: Enhance your cheese board with a balance of sweet and salty ingredients. Fruits like grapes and figs complement many cheeses, as do olives and toasted crackers.
