Why eat cheese and strawberries at Christmas?


Strawberries at Christmas? But only with Parmigiano Reggiano. Here is the combination to try (and give away) this year

Match cheese and strawberries, moreover a Christmas: it's not a gamble and we are ready to explain why.
In the life of each of us it has certainly already happened to taste cheeses together with jams and jams: a delicious combination which allows you to achieve the perfect balance between flavors, combining the flavor of cheese with the sweetness of fruit.
It is certainly not new to bring these two apparently incompatible ingredients to the table: it is increasingly widespread in fact serve the cheese with the fruit, whether it is for an appetizer, before dessert or as an original aperitif.

Obviously, all this is achieved by following some rules: fresh, soft and sweet cheeses will match perfectly with types of fruit with a very sour taste, such as citrus fruits; the more aged cheeses, with an intense aroma, give their best in combination with sweeter or more delicate fruit. And here comes the match to try Christmas 2020: Ferrari Cheeses is Blacksmiths join forces for a novelty able to amaze the taste during party dinners, but also the discarding of gifts. A special tasting package encloses a clove of Ferrari aged Parmigiano Reggiano aged over 40 months and a jar of whole strawberries in Fabbri syrup.

We are already used to combining strawberries with creamy cheeses for the preparation of desserts, such as cheesecake, but the unprecedented encounter between the flavors and textures proposed by this new couple is absolutely #To taste.
Ferrari Parmigiano Reggiano, thanks to his long seasoning, has a savory, intense and slightly spicy taste, which goes perfectly with strawberries. And there is no need to wait for spring to be able to enjoy them at their best: the latter are in fact processed in high quality syrup according to the traditional Fabbri recipe (that of the famous black cherries), to allow you to keep one of the most loved fruits throughout the year, to be enjoyed even at Christmas!
