After all, who wouldn't be thrilled with a Wisconsin cheese gift featuring some of the best cheese in the world, straight from the farm of an artisan cheesemaker? Nobody we know – or want to know.
There are endless ways to give a Wisconsin cheese gift. Here are a few of our favorites.
For individual Wisconsin cheese gift, a cheese from an artisan cheesemaker such as a triple-milk blue cheese, a butterkäse, a Cupola or a Liederkranz®.
Wisconsin mozzarella is a natural gift for pizza lovers, but any cheese with great melting properties can make a terrific Wisconsin cheese gift. Think Wisconsin burrata, gorgonzola, romano, havarti,or even limburger.
Every cheese can pair nicely with wine, but choosing the right wine and cheese for a gift can be daunting. Think first about balance – big-flavored cheeses need big bold wines, while milder, lighter cheeses want lighter reds and whites. Also, consider contrasting textures – a bubbly sparkling wine can contrast a creamy cheese nicely, while a buttery white will nicely complement the crystalline crunch of a big aged cheddar.
A charcuterie platter wants a nice contrast of cheeses, including a hard cheese like aged cheddar, a semi-firm cheese like swiss cheese, a soft cheese like burrata, and a blue or smoked cheese for extra flavor.
