Cider & Cheese

Wine is often heralded as the perfect match for cheese, but there is another drink which can lay claim to the perfect pairing – cider! Gabe Cook visits cheesemonger, Dominic Pulsford from Two Belly in Bristol, to learn more about how to approach cheese and cider matching. We test the old adage “what grows together, goes together” by matching ciders and cheese from the same region, as well as being playful with flavours, textures and occasions. This fun, engaging video brings to life the myriad matching opportunities, as well as some stories and fun facts and the cheeses, ciders and regions.
