    Serving Suggestions

    Appetizer or Main Course

    With its flavorful cumin seeds, this cheese makes a memorable lunch or appetizer platter. Serve slices of Leyden with cold-cuts, spicy-sweet honey mustard and a good dark bread such as rye or pumpernickel. These can be served warm or cold and topped with slices of ripe tomato and parsley or fresh arugula.

    Beverage match

    Serve with Rieslings or try it with Paul Thomas Dry Bartlett Pear Wine from Yakima, Washington. It’s also great with German or Belgian beer.
