With the Super Bowl looming, three questions are buzzing around America: Who are you pulling for; who’s singing at halftime; and where are you watching the game? And if you’re hosting a party, you’re also asking yourself: What am I going to feed these people?
So it’s a good time to highlight a basic lesson of hosting: Nothing classes up a party — even one that’s focused on watching football on TV — like good cheese.
And as I learned recently, nothing tastes better with cheese than beer. That’s the word from Garrett Oliver, author of The Brewmaster’s Table, an influential book about how to make beer-food relationships work.
