Honey and cheese pairings

 

  • Honeydew Forest Honey: This dark, full-flavoured, robust honey pairs perfectly with hard cheeses like a gruyere or a sharp cheddar- might we be bold (pun intended) and say the superior white cheddar? A sharp cheese can handle the bold honey flavour while providing balance.

  • Miombo Blossom Honey: This light and floral honey pairs well with piquant cheeses like gorgonzola or blue cheese. Its mild flavour and delicate floral notes help cut through the sharpness of the cheese.

  • Julbernardia Honey: Falling between Honeydew Forest Honey and Miombo Blossom Honey in terms of boldness, this honey's complex flavour pairs well with creamy and buttery cheeses such as brie or camembert.

  • Cacao Honey: This chocolatey honey with a thicker consistency is perfect mixed with a soft, mild cheese like ricotta. The honey adds a sweeter taste and depth to the cheese, making it a decadent spread.

  • Cinnamon Honey: The warm and sweet flavour of this honey pairs well with soft cheeses like goat cheese. The tangy and slightly acidic flavour of goat cheese helps balance out the warming cinnamon flavour of the honey and complements the creamy texture of the cheese.

  • Hot Honey: This nuanced sweet heat pairs well with any cheese, but smoked cheeses like smoked gouda are particularly exceptional. The smokiness of the cheese complements the heat and sweetness of the honey, creating a savoury and comforting flavour profile.

There you have it, you are now armed with a plethora of delicious and unique honey and cheese pairings! From the bold and robust Honeydew Forest Honey paired with sharp cheddar to the decadent Cacao Honey matched with a creamy ricotta, these pairings are sure to elevate your taste buds to new heights. 

Honey and cheese is a timeless classic, enjoyed for centuries. So why not give these pairings a try and discover your new favourite combination? Don't hesitate to explore the world of honey and cheese, and let your taste buds embark on a journey of sweet and savoury bliss!
