Housewarming Party … Miami Real Estate Cafe … Just Say Cheese!

wine and cheese housewarming

Having worked with home-buyers over the years,  The Restivo’s  have a handful of tried-and-true tips for a housewarming party:

Keep it simple  … Make it fun …   On the menu:   Wine and Cheese 

Cheeses:     Limit yourself  to three to five different cheeses.  Anything more than that is overwhelming to the palate.  For each type of cheese, buy one ounce per person.

Wines:  Choose one red, and one white … and make them somewhat versatile.   If you’re inviting 12 guests you’ll need about 4 bottles of each.

Crackers & Bread:  Get a couple boxes of crackers, and slice a French baguette into rounds.  If you want to be more creative than than, you can brush the baguette slices with olive oil and toast them … or use a European-style walnut-raisin bread from a top local bakery.

Fruit:  Snip the bunches into small clusters.  (You can certainly add sliced nectarines or apples as well).

Honey:  Some of the stronger, more pungent cheeses are complimented by the sweetness of honey.

Sun-dried tomatoes:  These mesh well with soft, mild cheeses  –  for example goat cheese or chevre.

Dried Sausage,  Prosciutto or Pate’:  Some of your guests may want a little something other than cheese.

Nuts: Salted, roasted, shelled.

Gerkins … Olives: The  flavors and textures contrast and compliment the rest of the menu.

… wine glasses… an opener…
