What is the best honey to pair with Grana Padano cheese?
The honey-cheese pairing is defined as the ‘perfect marriage’. Both have histories stretching back to ancient times, and strong local traditions. As with wine and beer, honey can be paired with various types of cheese and there are general rules to follow when defining the combinations. Generally speaking, for fresh cheeses, the best choice is a soft honey which neither covers nor sweetens it excessively. In the same way, the more mature the cheese the more suitable a stronger honey that balances its strong flavour and brings out the aromas of the result.
