How to Pair Wine and Cheese, According to One of America's Top Sommeliers



WHY IS WINE AND CHEESE SO GOOD FOR YOUR HEART?

If you made it through last weekend without a hint of indulgence, congrats - it was the final hurdle before total Christmas carnage.

If, however, you did dive into a Christmas smorgasbord of cheese, butter, cream, booze and more cheese, then, well, you're only human.

Thankfully, your body may not be suffering as much as you think. Sure, you didn't need that fifth glass of wine and maybe tearing open that slab of Port Salut wasn't the best choice, but it seems fatty foods such as cheese, butter and cream (the backbone of a diet high in sat-fat and one synonymous with the so-called French paradox) can operate "perfectly well" as energy source, instead of carbohydrates; while also protecting you from heart disease. 

So, while a slab of Roquefort washed down with a bottle of Margaux might not sound like the heart surgeon’s dejeuner of choice, it’s true that our gourmandizing cousins on the Continent have a distinctly low incidence of cardiovascular disease. Incroyable, non? Well, not quite. In fact, it mostly stands to reason: fat’s purported impact on cholesterol levels is now seen as something of a red herring and scientists are even researching its benefits to your health. Moreover, a recent study in theJournal of Agricultural and Food Chemistryfound that when you digest cheese your gut produces butyrate, which actuallylowersheart disease risk. We’ve said it before, gents, and we’ll keep saying it: grease is the word. As for the wine, well, as long as you’re keeping itfrancaiseand drinking while you eat then the risk to your health is significantly mitigated. All in all, then, not so paradoxical. In short: don’t fear themenu degustation. It’s (almost) what the doctor ordered. 

Three more ways to save your heart with your gut

01\ Du pain killer

Load up on carbs. A Journal of Nutrition study found
a wholegrain-based evening meal increases levels of butyrate the next morning.

02\ Swimming in butter

Swap out plant oils such as sunflower: these generate heart-harming aldehydes. Butter, however, increases heart-protective probiotics.
