No cheese or charcuterie plate is complete without Cornichons
. These Cornichons are nubby and bumpy, tart and crunchy. Why Cornichon's?The “ploughman’s lunch,” a meal of cheese, bread, and pickle, was an invention of the postwar British government, a successful attempt to get folks to eat more cheese after the end of rationing. The combination is now a classic pairing, as savory cheddar served with a sweet-and-salty pickle is extremely satisfying.
