EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Port, an excellent apéritif, is sweet fortified wine from Oporto, Portugal. All port ages in wood.

Camembert is soft creamy cheese encased in an edible white rind. Camembert oozes quickly when it's heated.

Cranberry-apple flavored drink can be used in place of port. Or try another fruity, full-bodied red wine, such as Zinfandel or Petite Sirah.

This Camembert needs a hearty match; serve it with petite toasts, lavosh, toasted baguette slices, or wheat crackers.
