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.
