Sucre Giveaway Winner

On Monday, I ran a giveaway for two Gorgonzola pairings I adore — candied pecans and dark chocolate. Anyone who commented on their favorite cheese pairing entered the drawing from Sucré, a sweet boutique in New Orleans that has agreed to mail the winner a tin of candied pecans and a box of chocolates.

Readers, you suggested some miraculous duos, from blue cheese and martinis (hello, sister!) to Winnimere with buckwheat honey. Melinda, you recommended smoked Gouda with a dark bock beer — I can taste it just thinking about it. Purr. S., I am intrigued by your love affair with Drunken Goat or Pecorino Ginepro and “little bits of dark chocolate, 60% or so.” Leigh, I would never think to cross smoked blue with beets and tahini, but it sounds brilliant on a salad or smattered onto toasted pita. So earthy. Let’s sauna.

I brought out the Yahtzee dice (remember when?) and flung them across the breakfast table. Spun ten black dots. Comment #10 came from Lakisha, who won herself a box of nuts and bon bons. She’s a fan of goat cheese and raspberry jam. Sounds like a love-in for pecans and choco truffles. Thanks, everyone, for submitting your mouth-watering illusions!

    I love that you used Yahtzee Dice; that has a special insouciance somehow consistent with a New Orleans sweet shop. I grew up in New Orleans (right around the corner from where Sucré is actually; though alas I no longer live there. You know what you should really do is acquire some Peychaud’s Bitters and some Herbsaint and make a Sazerac (the official cocktail of New Orleans) to have with that Gorgonzola and pecans. I would round this out with some oysters myself.
