Behold the cheese course and beer pairings
I only managed to get photos (thanks Alexis!) of some of the courses during Joel's birthday dinner, but I thought I'd post the ones I've got.
Behold the cheese course. With beer pairings.
In the foreplate, Humboldt fog, paired with a Saison Imperial Belgian Farmhouse Ale.
To the left, a Point Reyes Blue, accompanied by Chimay Grand Reserve (the blue cheese gave the Chimay a sweet taste!)
And to the right, a modest slice of Westcombe English Cheddar, alongside a Lagunitas IPA.
The only thing I hate about this photo is that there are two forks on the right side. Strange utensil placement haunts another photo I'll post as well. I can only tell you that when the table was set, everything was in the right place. I had no control over cutlery migration over the course of the night.
