TIP OF THE DAY: Developing Younger Palates

Even if your fledgling gourmets shrink from trying stronger cheeses, you can begin “cheese appreciation” at an early age by teaching them quality in the cheeses they do like. Buy different brands of Cheddar, Swiss and cream cheese, for example, and let the kids evaluate the differences between regular supermarket brands, organic brands and artisan brands. After they taste them, lead a discussion on how the flavors and textures differ and let them express opinions and preferences. Then share the prices and discuss price/value. If they prefer a more expensive cheese, do they prefer it enough to pay 20% or 30% more? You can do this with other foods they like—frankfurters, peanut butter and cookies. It’s never too early to develop an analytical palate.
