Cheese and Biscuits (née Crackers) combinations
OK so let’s get one thing straight right off the hoof: If you order “Cheese & Biscuits” in a restaurant… what you will generally be served are more properly called crackers. With a few exceptions of course… sometimes a Digestive biscuit will creep in there (and with good reason – they are yummy!). The “Biscuits” served for cheese are generally thinner, less sweet, and crispier than true biscuits, and as a cheese and crackers fanatic I feel it is important to clarify this highly significant linguistic anomaly, and ensure that the humble cracker has its rightful place in the sun.
With that said … why am I such a fan? Well it’s simple really… my dreamy cheese triangles are a perfect partner for a cracker (if you don’t believe me – you can watch the story of how they met and fell in love in 2016), and together they form the foundation of any sort of snack you might desire… indulgent or classic. Sweet or savoury. It’s all about finding the right combination.
Don’t know where to start? Never fear! I have compiled a list of my favourite combos below.
