Cheese Pairings by Sarah

Posted by VFC Marketing Team on Wed, Dec 11, 2019 @ 01:55 PM

Meet Sarah Clemens, our new Cheese Buyer with fun pairing ideas!

A lot of things have changed at the Viroqua Food Co+op recently and one thing we are really excited about is the new specialty cheese case. Our new Cheese Buyer, Sarah Clemens, brings you a diverse collection of cheeses from the Driftless region and beyond – some you may have heard of, and those you have yet to discover. Whether looking for the perfect cheese to pair with that special dinner or for help with building a center-piece cheese board for your next engagement, we’ve got you covered.

“Trust your taste buds and your instincts” suggests Sarah. “So much of the fun of cheese is discovering gems you never knew existed. Choose three or four pieces of cheese, both familiar and new, then pair them with your favorite crackers, jams, nuts, charcuterie, and fresh or dried fruit.”
