Went to film an episode of Master Pairings with “Dr.” Bill on Saturday and whipped up a batch of my Sriracha Cheese Log. Hadn’t made it since developing the recipe about two years ago and forgot how damn tasty it is. Cream cheese, chèvre, Sriracha (of course), parsley, rosemary, chives, garlic, and black peppercorns. Mmmmmm. I’ll definitely be breaking this one out again for the holidays. Bill paired it up with Nelson, a golden rye IPA from Alpine Beer Company, and it really worked well with the heat of the Sriracha, the brightness of the herbs, and helped cut through the creaminess of the cheese. A match made in heaven!
