Wine and Cheese Pairings
For a small group, serving just a few choice wines and cheeses is certainly the way to go. For a larger group, consider multiple pairings to appeal to a wider range of tastes. To keep expenses reasonable, you might want to ask each guest to bring a certain type of wine by their favorite producer. Then you can concentrate on providing the cheeses that pair nicely with each type.
