Cheddar, Meet Guava
Whether you're a newbie or seasoned taster of cheddar and guava paste, it's a pairing that's sure to knock your socks off. Its appearance is reminiscent of quince paste (membrillo), but its flavor is much sharper. Madame Fromage recommends any medium-sharp cheddar for this pairing.
Guava paste has a sour hook, just as cheddar often has a sour hook. That’s why the pairing makes star babies in your eyes. Sour and sour, plus sweet and sweet. It’s crazy crack.
