Cheese and Honey Pairing with Meg - Aroeira
We are so excited to introduce you to our friend Meg, from the popular Instagram @ainttooproudtomeg. Meg specializes in building beautiful cheese boards and we were lucky enough to work with her last Holiday season. She designed four boards featuring our 4 flagship Bee Seasonal honey varietals from Harvest 001 collection.

"(...) I’ve always been a fan of complimenting the saltiness of cheese with the sweetness of honey. I’ve enlisted the experts at @beeseasonalhoney to give us the low down on honey varietals AND the unique flavor combinations you can put together for the perfect pairing!"
"This honey has the strongest aroma of the 4 so you want to pair it with more full-bodied cheeses (like Stilton, Pecorino, or Truffle Goat Cheese). Strawberries, blackberries & dark chocolate are also perfect pairings because they compliment the honey’s flavor characteristics (i.e. hints of caramelized sugar & marshmallow). So now that we have all the ingredients, what comes next? Here’s what I would do: take a cracker, spread some Stilton, add a blackberry, and a drizzle of Aroeira Honey on top! Another great bite suggested by Larissa and Thomas of Bee Seasonal would be truffle goat cheese, topped with pink peppercorns and a drizzle of honey".
