When assembling a cheese or a meat and cheese tray for your next wine tasting party, be sure to include extra sharp cheddar among your offerings. Quite unlike any other cheese you will be serving, extra sharp cheddar brings its own rich, pungent taste that is best offset by a full red wine. Serve it with crackers or simply by itself. Melt it onto tiny crusty pieces of bread in the broiler and top with chives, scallions, or cilantro for delicious hors d’oeuvres.
