I absolutely adore holiday parties. The holiday season brings people together for fun, festive parties and dinners.
While I always tend to go overboard with food and wine, the easiest way I attempt at keeping it simple is through cheese. Yes, cheese. Everyone loves cheese, which makes it a perfect go-to appetizer.
Have you chosen your wine from my Holiday Entertaining Wines list yet or Christmas Dinner Wine Pairings list? Once you have filled your basket with wine, head on over to the cheese aisle and stock up for your holiday party or dinner. Don’t know which cheese to buy?
