a match made in heaven...

there aren't too many things in life better then cheese & wine. i love trying new cheeses {& wines} and pairing them with different foods. for example... a salty Parmesan cheese tastes perfect with a sweet fig jam and a big glass of red wine. in my little world this could be considered a meal... a perfect little meal. the fireman however needs a bit more then some cheese and wine for dinner. so last night i arranged a salty/sweet cheese pairing platter, while the fireman grilled his idea of a perfect pairing... a ribeye steak and kale sautee. it was a perfect night in!

*a little foodie note: i picked up these a-mazing ingredients at my favorite Italian deli Baycities in Santa Monica. if you're ever in their neck of the woods... stop by for lunch & a little grocery shopping. i promise it's a pretty special place!

cheese + wine
{i was SO happy to use my new teeny-tiny spoon i picked up at the flea market last month... and check out my new cheese cleaver!!! i'm in love! the fireman thinks it awesome too. check it out here}

{the cheeses were amazing! and the wine we washed it all down with was a yummy Malbac. yum yum!}

{i have been eye-balling this {REAL} honeycomb for a while now. i was SO excited to finally try it... and it turns out that this textured treat was the very best part of the entire pairing process! this cool comb would even make a great hostest gift the next time you go to a party!}

{make sure when you go to Baycities to grab some of their fresh baked bread. to die for.}

if you have any yummy pairing tips or a cheese you can't live without let me know... 
i would love to hear what cheese makes your world complete!

Oh my goodness, that looks AMAZING! I totally think cheese and wine (and maybe a little fruit just to make it healthy) definitely constitutes a whole meal!
