Roasted Rutabaga and Roquefort? Peanut Butter and Pierre Robert? Marinated Mackerel and Mimolette?

Attention cheese lovers: Wedge + Fig is having their first ever Cheese Pairing Contest! Develop the most creative, interesting and delicious cheese pairing and you could win a Wedge + Fig gift basket loaded with cheese, crackers and other fun edibles, valued at $75.

Wedge and Fig has assembled an esteemed panel of judges who will review your suggested cheese pairings including Wedge+Fig Executive Chef Rebecca Torpie, Tenaya Darlington (aka Madame Fromage) and Melanie Fortino, Head Cheesemonger at DiBruno Brothers Chestnut Street.

The judges will pick the top three pairings, test, taste and pick a winner. In addition to awarding the gift basket, Wedge + Fig will also showcase the winning pairing during the month of December.

Email your fabulous creation to pairingscontest@wedgeandfig.com by Friday, November 18. They’ll announce the winner on Monday, November 21. Be sure to include a recipe if it’s not a food that can readily be bought.

And, check out one of Chef Torpie’s innovative and delicious cheese pairings in the Bacon and Blue Cheese Gratin dish we posted a few days ago.
