10 Cheeses and Their Literary Counterparts
Forget wine. Pull out a book by one of these 10 authors for your next cheese pairing!
As a former English major and current food lover, I confess to little fits of glee whenever I come across anything food-and-literature-related. (Remember these writers’ cocktails or this list of writers’ favorite snacks?) Today’s find comes to us from The Airship, and it’s specifically geared towards cheese lovers, of which I am one: 10 cheeses and their literary counterparts!
Reading Virginia Woolf? Then try the Bayley Hazen Blue. It’s “dense with flavor, care and feeling,” the “Mrs. Dalloway of cheeses.”
If you’re a fan of Toni Morrison, then make sure to try the L’amuse 2 Year Aged Gouda. It has “rich notes of hazelnut and caramel, and a deep, complex finish,” a perfect accompaniment for “a writer known for her intricate themes, vivid dialogue and skill for detail.”
