It’s definitely that time of year again. The neighbours are decorating their houses and getting ready to host dinner parties throughout the holiday season. I will be dedicating the next two months to “crowd appropriate cheese”. Although I love a good smelly, oozing cheese, I also understand that most people do not. I think the hardest part about entertaining is considering your audience.
Du Village is a large scale cheese maker but they produce timeless, consistent results every time.Their double cream is no exception. It’s a typical bloomy rind, soft cheese. Relatively neutral and buttery with an aroma of forest mushrooms. I enjoyed this cheese with red pepper jelly and water crackers. Brought to room temperature, this crowd pleaser would make a fine addition to any holiday cheese plate.
