Whenever I host any kind of festive party, I always make sure to have a platter of cheese and crackers with some fruit. Almost everyone likes to eat cheese and crackers, so it's a safe nosh dish to have. The problem I run into though is that I always like to do something different, and with cheese this is no problem because there are so many choices. The problem is what cheese to pick, and if you're going to have wine at your party, what cheese goes with what type of wine. In that area, I have not a clue.
If you have the same problem, there is no need to worry any more. Whole Foods has on their website a lovely page that describes different types of cheeses and wines, and gives recommendations on what wine goes well with a particular food taste like what wine goes with beef, spicy food, tangy foods, or sweet foods. Simply fabulous! You'll look a very cultrured hostess when you have your next soiree.
