chimay cheeseThanks to our friend Matt Bollerman and a trip to the cheese counter at Whole Foods, we recently found ourselves in possession of both a bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve from 2011 and a portion of Chimay Grand Classique Cheese, hopefully not with quite as much age on it.

So for those who can’t be bothered with the daunting task of both eating pickles and drinking beer, this is the ideal way to combine flavors in one compact bite.
