Simone is hanging out with Nugget's executive cheese buyer Jeremy Patin to find out how to pair cheese with your dad's favorite whiskey.
We all know Dad loves cheese on a hamburger, grilled for a sandwich and for some pre-dinner snacking. We also know that many dads are fast becoming fans of whiskey as a delicious adult beverage. But have they paired their two loves? This Father’s Day forget the tie and treat dad to one of the hottest food trends – pairing whiskey with cheese! While whiskey and cheese pairings are far more interesting and exciting than wine and cheese pairings, they are really not that different. For example, pair a harder cheese with a lighter whisky and a creamier cheese with a heavier whisky. Certain whiskeys go great with blue cheese and goat cheese actually pairs better with whiskey than wine.
