🧀🍯  Cheese and Honey

Today, let's talk about a classic combo that's so popular, and it's practically a cliche: cheese and honey. You see it all the time, right? Cheese board pics with honey drizzled all over. But let me tell you, it's not as simple as it seems!

When it comes to taste, there are no hard and fast rules. It's not like you can pour honey on any cheese, and it'll automatically taste amazing. There are way more cheeses that don't go well with honey than those that do.

In my experience, only fresh curd cheeses or cheeses with a tangy and robust flavor, like Roquefort or Munster, are the best candidates for adding honey. But for pretty much any other type of cheese, you must approach it on a case-by-case basis.

For example, honey can ruin a delicate Reblochon or young Comté. And while Normandy camembert can work with honey, it's got to be quite aged. The same goes for Brie. Semi-hard cheeses with a short aging period can work if they have a bright, piquant flavor or a tangy taste. But mild and delicate cheeses will get drowned out by the sweetness of honey, so it's probably best to skip it.

Now, I have to say that I don't want to bring anyone down or anything. If you love this or that particular cheese and honey together, go for it! Everyone's got their personal preferences, and that's totally cool. But remember, what works for one person might not work for another.

So my advice? Experiment, try new things, and find your own path to cheesy bliss. And don't take any of my advice as the only way - it's just my opinion, after all. 😄 But seriously, give honey a chance! There are so many different varieties, each with its unique flavor profile. It's a whole world of deliciousness waiting to be explored.
