What are the best preserves and cheese pairings for the holidays?
Preserves served with cheese make simple and delicious snacks, appetizers and desserts.
The classic flavor contrast of salty and sweet is easy to perfect with Bonne Maman Preserves and high quality cheeses. Our 100% natural fruit flavors provide a sweet burst of flavor that effortlessly compliments the smooth, salty flavors of cheese.
Goat cheese with Bonne Maman Fig Preserves
Goat cheeses feature a fresh, salty flavor profile that is a great match for our savory, ripened Bonne Maman Fig Preserves.
Try serving this combination in a puff pastry. Simply spread some Bonne Maman Fig Preserves in the center of a pastry and add crumbled goat cheese. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top and bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 15 minutes at 375°.
Bonne Maman Wild Blueberry Preserves with Etorki cheese
Etorki is a sheep’s milk cheese with a smooth, velvety texture and rich, hazelnut flavor. Its aroma is sweet and buttery, and the cheese is full flavored and silky. Its supple texture makes Etorki a perfect pair with our Bonne Maman Wild Blueberry Preserves, which pack a robust and naturally sweet flavor in an easily spreadable gel. Try serving this combination with slices of a hearty French bread.
