A Significant Dip

Should cheese and chocolate get together?

Dan Bieser, of Milwaukee’s Tabal Chocolate, contemplated the marriage of Wisconsin’s dairy darling and his chocolate after watching an episode of Netflix’s “Chef’s Table” featuring a cheese factory tour. Bieser explored the dipping possibilities with Walker’s Point’s Clock Shadow Creamery, eventually choosing four cheeses, bite-sized cubes of which are dunked in Tabal’s 70-percent Dominican cacao.

The chocolate’s fruity, floral, nutty notes highlight characteristics of each cheese (for instance, a goat milk cheddar’s sharpness). A 15-piece box is $25 at Clock Shadow Creamery and Amaranth Bakery & Cafe.

‘A Significant Dip’ appears in the April 2016 issue of Milwaukee Magazine.
