Strawberry and cheese pairings

Strawberries combined with dairy such as milk or cream are combinations that we all know and love. Think of a strawberry milkshake or strawberries with whipped cream on a tarte. Less we are used to combine strawberries with cheeses.

However if you look at the aroma profile of strawberry aromas smelling like fruity, cheesy, green, roasted are crucial to obtain strawberry.

So if cheesy, fruity is so important for strawberry, it is not so surprising to find out that cheese and strawberry combine.
