Hosting & EntertainingSEP 13, 2023
So many apple varieties. So many cheeses. Where to begin? We've picked eight of the most common apples and matched them with eight of our favorite cheeses, creating bites bursting with salty-sweet, creamy-crisp magic.
Fuji + Chabichou du Poitou
Honeycrisp + Marieke Aged Gouda
This gouda's nutty flavor and caramel sweetness make this combination almost like biting into a savory caramel apple.
McIntosh + Murray's Cave Aged Reserve Annelies
Golden Delicious + Murray's French Double Crème Brie
A mild, sweet apple makes a delicious base for a mild, buttery cheese. Try baking them in puff pastry for a special treat.
Gala + Gorgonzola Cremificato
We're heading into dessert territory with slices of sweet, floral apples and a milky, earthy, oh-so creamy Italian blue.
Granny Smith + Murray's Irish Cheddar
Empire + NY State Yellow Cheddar
What grows together goes together! In this New York-inspired bite, crisp apples are ideal with milky, creamy cheddar.
