Ask Mary: How to Finish a Meal

Dear Mary,
What is the best way to finish a meal?
Cheers! Paul

Absolutely, cheese is the best way to finish a meal. When making a cheese platter for the table, I suggest a hard cheese like Parmesan, and a soft cheese like a Triple Cream (similar to a Brie). Finish the platter with a a beautiful goat cheese like Humble Fog. If you can't find this brand, go for Chevre. If you're feeling adventurous, you can also try a sheep cheese like Petit Basque. It's just wonderful.

Sheep cheese is easier to digest than other cheeses, and in my opinion, it has a delicious flavor that can't be beat!

Happy Hunting,
