Do you have a favorite food or food pairing? I think everyone does.
Mine is unexpected, especially if you know of my love of other foods, like grilled cheese sandwiches, homemade mac & cheese, Cornish pasties, shepherd’s/cottage pie, and my Death Row meal.
I adore cheese and grapes. Just cheese and grapes. Nothing fancy at all. I eat this at least three times a week — if I need a quick snack or even an on-the-go lunch, this is my default. If I want comfort food, this is often where I turn.The key is to eat them simultaneously. I’m sure a food scientist could tell me why a sharp cheddar and a sweet grape taste so good together in my mouth, but I don’t need science or logic to back my tastebuds.
No exaggeration, if you were to present me with a plate of grapes and pieces of cheese, I would not be able to resist. If you were to invite me to your house and you served your guests cheese and grapes, I would have to force myself to step away from the platter and not eat it all myself. I am not lying when I tell you that I would choose cheese and grapes over even chocolate.
