I was given this tip the other day and just had to try it out and report back to you. Want to give a mild cheese a bit more flavour?? Perhaps ensure it goes perfectly well with a wine you are serving? Well, here is a quick and neat way to do just that.
It’s ok to weep at its beauty. I won’t judge.
I started with a wheel of tete au moine cheese – a flavourful but versatile cheese. Then I soaked a piece of cheese cloth in white wine until it was damped and wrapped the cheese. I let it sit for 3 days until the cheese had absorbed the wine. It was amazing how the cheese had absorbed the fruity and floral notes of the wine. After 3 days it had only absorbed a couple of layers deep, so after a few pieces it was back to the regular cheese flavour.
A neat little trick, no?
