Take the stress out of entertaining this holiday season with these four simple cheese hors d’oeuvres. With each recipe, you will discover two great wine selections that pair perfectly with each dish, as we believe if you “like this” you might also want to “try that.”
New Kids on the Cheese Block
It isn’t just new wineries, breweries and distilleries adding flavour to the local food and drink scene. A couple of new artisanal cheese makers are ripe with passion for an industry that is making the cheese board anything but boring.
Blue Harbour Cheese
Nova Scotia’s first urban cheese house encourages cheese lovers to “embrace the blue.” Urban Blue Cheese has a creamy texture and relatively subtle blue cheese flavours.
The cheese is currently in limited distribution but finds its way into some of Halifax’s finest dining establishments and specialty food shops. blueharbourcheese.com
Wandering Shepherd Cheese
Wandering Shepherd Cheese proves the locavore movement is alive and well in Cape Breton. Despite its island origins, Wandering Shepherd’s artisan ewe and cow milk cheeses have developed a cult-like following on both sides of the causeway. 902-574-6979
