Read more to learn about some popular and easy to experience cheese and fruit pairings that will make any day of the week that much more fun! Try making a fruit kebab with cheese and be the superior party host!

Smoked Gouda with Figs

Smoked Gouda may not be a favourite, but it works well on a cheeseboard. If you have a lot more than you bargained for, then slice it up and try it with some figs instead. The smokiness of the cheese is easily balanced with a bite of mild fig fruit, toning down the complexity and making it a delicious treat! 

Feta Cheese and Watermelon

Feta cheese is the best choice to enjoy with a side of cold fruits on a hot summer’s day! The mild crumbly cheese works well with fresh strawberries, but the taste and bite are even more enjoyable with sweet, cold slices of watermelon. 

Cheddar with Apples

If you have ever tried honey crisp apples or green apples with a side of Nutella or peanut butter, then you might also enjoy experimenting with some slices of cheddar cheese. Aged cheddar works well with the cool sweet bite giving you a sweet and salty experience to remember! The best part is that cheddar and apples are a pantry essential, making them super easy to access. 

Brie with Pear

Brie is a classic favourite on the cheeseboard and it pairs well with pears. You can enjoy the cheese on a tart, or in the salad, and for a quick snack on the go, you can cut the cheese up with a pear and drizzle it with honey. Yummy! 

Fontina and Strawberries

Strawberries work well with Feta cheese, but they taste even better with Fontina. Pair it up with this cheese buttered on a toast and enjoy a slice or two as an alternative to a healthy sweet snack! You can even enjoy it with fresh strawberries or even with a strawberry jam.
