 A good quality cheese deserves more than the company of a mediocre piece of bread. What about creating a bread with ingredients that perfectly match your cheese using Foodpairing®?

The Catalan Albert Adrià, together with R&D Food Revolution, give a new dimension to the classic cheese platter. Using the Foodpairing® Inspiration Tool in the development process, they created different kinds of breads which pair up perfectly with 5 specific types of cheese.

The secret of the perfect cheese platter lies not only in the right combination, but also in the order of eating.  Each cheese has a different flavor depending on its aromas, taste and texture.

We start our cheese platter with goat and sheep cheeses accompanied by a piece of perfectly matching Tomato & oregano bread.

Goat and sheep cheeses are characterized by a high acidity level and a refreshing taste. They are a perfect starter for a cheese platter since they warm up and awaken our taste buds.

The green aromas present in these type of cheeses can also be found in the aromatic profile of tomato. Tomato and oregano share their spicy, citrus and floral notes. Enjoying a piece of goat or sheep cheese on a tomato-oregano bread makes perfect sense.
