Cream Sherry With Pate
Cream Sherry is a sweeter, blended version invented by Harvey’s in the 19th century for the British market. It is the style many of us think of first when Sherry crops up, and while it’s generally agreed that it is an excellent match for blue cheese, it can also show to advantage earlier in the meal, with pate, especially one that has a touch of spice.
The Wine serves as an equivalent of the fruit chutneys that tend to work so well with this sort of starter, the alcohol balancing out the richness while the sweetness rounds out the meat.
An unconventional but exciting combination.
