I have been wanting to host a cheese and wine party for awhile now because let’s face it, I am obsessed with food. 😉 So a party themed around food is my kind of party! There were however, a few problems. #1 I don’t drink so I needed to find a gluten-free, non-alcoholic wine. #2 Every cheese and wine party needs delicious accompaniments but those usually include crackers so I needed to find a cracker that was crunchy and tasty enough to fool my non-gluten friends into enjoying them at our party. Enter Glutino Rosemary and Olive Oil crackers. These crackers are SO flavorful while maintaining the integrity of a good cracker with nice crunch. I served these as well as some of my gluten-free bagel chips to my friends and they loved them! Nobody could even tell they were gluten-free…yay!! I want to note how sweet my friends are that they brought gluten-free items to the party. Even my friend who made a pastry encrusted brie on a separate plate brought me my own little brie slice without the pastry. My friends are so sweet…
With all the salty that was happening between the cheese, olives and crackers I definitely felt a sweet treat was in order. These lemon wafer cookies couldn’t have been more perfect as they were delicate and fresh in flavor and texture. They were a softer crunch compared to the cracker which was a nice change for our palates. The lemon flavor almost acted as an intermezzo between plates of salty, bold, cheese and cracker flavors. These little wafers would be perfect served on a picnic or at a gluten-free tea party.
I should note that we found some delicious non-alcoholic wine that was gluten-free. Ariel blanc was mild and the perfect beverage accompaniment to our party. Thank you to Glutino for making this a success! So are you ready to win some crackers and wafer cookies all for yourself?! Enter below.
