  4. 4. 3/21/2014 4 Pairing Tips 1) Start with cheese – the sweetness of chocolate can overwhelm the palate. 2) Cheese:Chocolate ratio – a little chocolate goes a long way, you should have 2x as much cheese as chocolate. 3) Quality matters – In both cheese and chocolate, the higher the quality, the better your experience. 4) Be creative – consider contrasting textures, adding fruit, nuts and wine to your pairings. 5) Play with regional chocolates – Swiss, Italian, etc.
