Tomato Basil Cheddar

Tomato Basil Cheddar is a sharp medium cheddar, infused with flavors of tomato and basil. Shreds and slices well, so it’s perfect for sandwiches. Pairs well with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Natural Tomato Basil Cheddar Cheese  

Product Description: Natural Tomato Basil Cheddar Cheese is a rich cheddar that is bursting with flavor. The sweetness of sun-dried tomatoes meets basil’s aromatic freshness.

Pairings and Complementary Flavors:

Cocktails: Old Fashioned, Classic Margarita, Basil Gimlet, Bloody Mary
~ The complexity found in an Old Fashioned stands up to the bold flavors of the cheese, making it a robust pairing.
~ The tangy lime and tequila in a Margarita complement the cheddar’s sharpness and the tomatoes’ sweetness.
~ A Basil Gimlet, using basil-infused simple syrup, echoes the herbal notes of the cheese.
~ A classic Bloody Mary harmonizes with the tomato flavor in the cheese.

Wine: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Chianti, Prosecco
~ A crisp Sauvignon Blanc matches the herbal notes of the basil while its acidity cuts through the cheddar’s richness.
~ A light-bodied Pinot Noir, with its subtle earthiness and red fruit notes, does not overpower the delicate balance of tomato and basil in the cheese.
~ Zinfandel brings out the sweetness of the sun-dried tomatoes with its ripe fruit flavors and a hint of spice.
~ Chianti, with its bright acidity and hints of cherry, complements the cheese’s tomato flavors without overpowering them.
~ A light, fruity Prosecco is the perfect refreshment between bites of this flavorful cheese.

Beer:  IPA, Wheat Beer, Pilsner, Amber Ale, Saison
~ An IPA matches the intensity of the cheese, while the hop-bitterness contrasts nicely with the creamy richness.
~ Wheat Beer‘s light and often citrusy notes enhance the basil’s herbaceous qualities and the tomato’s tanginess.
~ A crisp and clean Pilsner cuts through the richness of the cheese while not competing with the flavors.
~An Amber Ale with caramel malt notes brings a touch of sweetness that plays well with the tomatoes in the cheese.
~ Saison, known for its mild spice and moderate tartness, echoes the complex flavors of the cheese to harmonize nicely.

Accompaniments: Bread, crackers, fruits, nuts, olives, pickles, mustard, jam, honey, cured meats
~ A simple rustic bread or cracker provides a neutral base that won’t detract from the cheese’s flavor.
~ Apple, pear, or grapes provide a sweet and juicy contrast to the savory cheese.
~ Almonds, walnuts, or pecans offer a crunchy texture and nutty flavor that complements the cheese without overpowering it.
~ Olives or pickles provide a salty counterpoint to the creamy cheese, while grainy mustard adds a sharp bite that contrasts nicely. A sweet tomato jam or herb-infused honey provides a sweet and aromatic dimension.
~ Salami or prosciutto adds a savory, salty depth that pairs well with the sharper notes of the cheddar.

Suggested uses:

  • A great option for a charcuterie tray.
  • Brings a burst of flavor to grilled cheese sandwiches, wraps, pasta, salads, burgers, and egg dishes.
  • Amplifies the flavor of pizza and other Italian dishes.
  • Adds a savory touch to soups, sauces, and dips.
