Cheese tasting rules
Cheese tasting is best done in a relaxed atmosphere. Only in it you can appreciate the interesting smells and taste of a particular brand of cheese.
Cheese tasting is as follows:
1. Evaluation of appearance.
You should carefully examine the cheese, evaluate its texture and color. Cheese piece is cut so that you can evaluate the crust and the internal structure.
2. Evaluation of cheese by touch.
To crumple the cheese piece is not necessary. It is enough just to knock on it or press on its crust. This will determine its consistency. You should also check how freely a knife or cutting string passes through it.
As a result of this assessment, the cheese brand is determined for brittleness, fleshiness, elasticity and creaminess.
3. Evaluation of cheese on the smell.
For a qualitative assessment of the smell, the curd should be brought directly to the nose. This is best done with a fork. Indeed, even the smallest smell of soap and perfume can distort the aromatic range of the brand of cheese.
4. Evaluation of cheese to taste.
To assess the taste range, you need to try a small, very thinly slice. Put it on the tip of the tongue and roll across the mouth. Evaluation of taste is performed in 3 stages:
– Bouquet development;
Cheese is evaluated by the following parameters:
– Cheese dries or knits;
– How hard the cheese mass envelops the mouth;
– Whether the taste is homogeneous, or there are extraneous blotches in it;
– How much taste is oily (rich);
– Mouth cheese or sticky fluid;
– Light or heavy;
– How much it crumbles.
If the event format allows, cheese tasting can be combined with wine tasting.
Rules for tasting meat snacks
Tasting meat snacks and sausages will not require such a thoughtful and focused assessment of taste, as required by tasting cheeses.
Therefore, the tasting stand can be placed even at a large exhibition or in a noisy shopping center. Since such a tasting will not carry any advertising load, you can safely carry out this event as part of your advertising and marketing campaign.
