WI Dairy News: A match made in WI heaven

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Most people have thought of pairing cheese with wine, beer and spirits. Nuts, fruit and crackers go hand in hand with a cheesy treat, but have you ever considered enjoying your muenster with a Mars bar?

Gail Ambrosius is a chocolatier based in Madison who specializes in pairing outstanding chocolate with the right flavor accompaniment; but who would have thought of Wisconsin cheese?

In front of a crowd of about 50 cheese and chocolate enthusiasts, Gail and Sara Hill, Culinary Manager for Cheese Education for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, led a seminar about pairing Wisconsin Cheese and chocolate.

Just a small amount of both cheese and chocolate prove to be quite a satisfying flavor sensation.

"It hits so many different zones in your mouth too," Ambrosius said. "It can be a little salty, it can be a little sweet, it can get you in the back you know where the tannins come out. It's just so satisfying and really complex. No two chocolates are the same."

With more than 600 varieties, types and styles of Wisconsin Cheese, and numerous chocolates to choose from, the pairing possibilities are endless.
