Texture

Keep the texture of both the cheese and the vessel in mind when it comes to your pairing. For instance, I love contrasting soft buttery cheeses with a crisp cookie (another reason I love fresh goat cheese with lemon shortbread). 

Sometimes we say that balance is the goal in a pairing. At a 101-level, that is true. If one flavor overpowers another, it’s probably not a great pairing. But, even more than that, enjoyment is the goal of pairings. The fun thing about eschewing crackers is that it allows you to be more playful with the foods that you think go with cheese, allowing for you to make the cheeseboard feel even more like you. 

As someone who personally and professionally enjoys cheese, please understand that I’m not suggesting that your next cheeseboard should be cracker-free. If you love a certain kind of cracker, you should use it (when I’m digging into cheese at home, there’s a 90% chance that Triscuits are involved). 

I’m just suggesting we bring a little more mindfulness to our cheese boards. Here are a few pairings to start with.
