5 pairing ideas from… Svetlana Kukharchuk, The Cheese Lady

What’s on your dream cheeseboard?

La Tur, Munster, Appenzeller Edel Wurzig, Corra Linn and Rogue River Blue.

What’s your all-time favourite cheese pairing?

Délice des Crémiers with Champagne.

Any unusual pairings you’d recommend?

Burrata drizzled with chestnut honey on toasted date and walnut bread.

What do you love to drink with cheese?

Mostly wine – the colour depends on the cheeses served, but an elegant oaky Chardonnay is always a good choice for me as it is very cheese-friendly.

What must-have cheese kit would you recommend?

My only must-have is a great board to serve cheese on – I recommend both slate and olive wood varieties.
