Here’s a new one… Will and Lassa at Culture go in search of cheese pairings with (mostly) common soda’s. I mean, we’ve all had soda with cheese – but this is an approach ala wines, beers and spirits:
I really wanted to find Ting, a very refreshing Jamaican grapefruit soda that’s a bit pulpy, but couldn’t locate any. I found the more available and less Orangina-esque Squirt. For this relatively light and tart soda we started again with chevre:
Tangy Redwood Hill Chèvre actually concealed the sourness of the soda, which was part of the point, right?
Humboldt Fog was a good match this time: the cheese’s salt stood out and the combo really worked.
A triple cream stripped the fruit from the soda, making it cloying.
Bellwether’s Carmody was a decent match, too, but not as tight as Humboldt Fog.
