Popcorn with fresh shredded truffle cheese and Tamarack Wine Cellars “Firehouse Red” 2015 wine.
Microwave Popcorn ( I love Costco because it’s not too buttery but just enough!)
A bar of Melkbus Truffle Cheese ( I get it at Whole Foods- any kind of truffle cheese will be great)
Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red wine, Columbia Valley 2015
So easy- Spread the popcorn out on a long tray so all pieces get a nice coating of cheese! Shred the fresh truffle cheese generously on the popcorn while it’s hot. Watch the cheese melt as you pour the wine. Relax and enjoy every delicious bite and sip!
Perfect pairing! Easy! Creamy + crunchy + velvety = delicious!
Why it’s a perfect symphony for the taste buds.
The truffle cheese is a warm combination of garlic, creamy, earthy, nutty flavors that meet so well with popcorn and this red blend from Walla Walla Washington (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc +) that also has earthy flavors, but of fruit, herbs and spice tones. It’s like when 3 new friends meet and just all hit it off! Even if you can’t find this exact pairing, I hope it inspires you to try a fun combination of popcorn, cheese and wine that you have access to. It’s funny how something so simple can be so special! Not everything needs to be fussy to be great!
