Spring Produce and Cheese Pairings

The best cheeses to pair with the bounty of the season


Spring is simply a great season for vegetables. With asparagus, artichokes, ramps and more all coming into their peak, there are just so many delicious dishes to be made.

What better way to take advantage of that prime seasonal produce than by pairing it with some creamy, rich cheese? Finding a perfect cheese pairing for your spring dish is a more than easy, plus the search for the best pairing is pretty tasty on its own.

Spring also being the season for fresh cheeses, it is a great idea to play with this genre when pairing with your fruits and veggies. Look for cheeses like ricotta, un-aged mozzarella, fresh goat cheeses and Chevre, though any local fromager can advise you on the best seasonal cheeses at any time.
