Wine and cheese
A selection of cheeses and wine recommendations
The wine and cheese format is always a winner for friendly yet classy events. Robert Alexis Traiteur knows how to make this classic get-together a resounding success, no matter who’s invited or where it’s taking place. The perfect wine and food pairings will elevate any combination of flavours. Sounds complicated? It doesn’t have to be! We’ve been doing this for 35 years.
We propose a tasting menu made up of eight fine cheeses, along with wine recommendations from our experts. Furthermore, we can serve our menu in four courses or as a buffet; the choice is yours. We can also recommend accompanying dishes if you would like to serve something a little more filling. As always, we are more than happy to accommodate any special requests to ensure you are entirely satisfied with your event.
Here are our pairing suggestions.
