The science of pairing wine with food has been studied for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and the general consensus is that they work wonderfully together. What is not an exact science, however, is what traditional holiday meals are served from one family to another.

It’s been 13 years since “podcast” was deemed word of the year by the Oxford Dictionary, but we’re right smack in the middle of a podcast renaissance, people. This rebirth of a audio concept has ushered in a new era of addictive content, without all the effort of reading an article or sifting through you bookmarks to find where you left off.

This is where you find all the nuance, regionality, etc., and the same goes for cheese. The list of ingredients is rather small, yet working inside a very small framework of raw ingredients and processes, there are literally thousands of cheeses, all unique!
