Chocolate & Cheese Pairing Chart For National Chocolate Day

This year, for National Chocolate Day, October 28th, we’ve got Part 2 of our exploration of chocolate and cheese pairings.

The chart below joins our other chocolate pairing articles:

  • Beer & Chocolate Pairings
  • Cheese & Chocolate Pairings, Part 1
  • Scharffen Berger Chocolate Bars & Wine Pairings
  • Scotch & Chocolate Pairing
  • Sparkling Rosé & Chocolate Pairings
  • Tea & Chocolate Pairings
  • Tequila, Tea & Chocolate Pairings
  • Water & Chocolate Pairing

    The best way to appreciate these pairings is to get a group together to taste them.

    What if each participant took on a different pairing group—say, one tasting a month?

    CABOT CHOCOLATE PAIRING CHART

    Cabot Cheese Co-op put together the chart below to showcase how to pair chocolate with some of its cheeses.

    The pairings in this chart themselves can create a really terrific cheese and chocolate tasting.

    While Cabot has paired particular cheeses with particular chocolates, you can create a tasting with the pairings, rather than the flavors; for example:

     

    Blue Cheese & Chocolate Pairing

    Red Wine & Chocolate Pairing
    [2] Red wine, chocolate, and raspberries: a great pairing, missing only the cheese. We vote for a ripe Brie or Camembert (photo © Discover California Wine).

    Beer & Chocolate Bonbons Pairing

  • Bacon chocolate with cheddar instead of bacon Cheddar with plain chocolate.
  • Habanero chocolate with sharp Cheddar instead of milk chocolate with habanero Cheddar.
  •  
    And, you can pair the chocolate with other cheeses beyond Cheddar. Mix, match, and see what works for you!
