Goes With Cheese, Rhymes With Quackers

Crackers that would go great with Domenica's recommended summer cheeses for eating fresh. (Bill Webster -- The Washington Post)

After reading Domenica Marchetti's Say Cheese blog post yesterday and seeing her article on summer cheeses in our section today, we thought you ought to branch out in the Accompanying Cracker Dept. as well. Here are three, pictured above, we found while we were out shopping for Domenica's cheeses:

On the left: Margaret's Artisan Bakery crackers (flavors: Roasted Garlic & Chives or Rosemary and Sea Salt), 5.3 ounces, $4.59, at La Fromagerie, 1222 King St., Alexandria, 703-862-7157.

In the middle: Miguel & Valentino "Picos de Pan" mini toasted baguettes, 7.7 ounces, $2.50, at A&H Gourmet Seafood Market, 4960 Bethesda Ave., Bethesda, 301-986-9692.

On the right: Rustic Bakery crackers (flavors: Sea Salt and Olive Oil, Kalamata OIive, Sweet Onion and Creme Fraiche, Polenta and Black Pepper), 5 to 6 ounces, $7.25, at Cowgirl Creamery, 919 F St. NW, Washington, 202-393-6880. Also at Cheesetique, 2411 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria, 703-706-5300.

What are your favorites?

You should try Harris Teeter's "HT Traders" Organis 8-Grain crackers in Italian Herb. Also comes in Seeded and Muligrain varieties but the Italian Herb is totally addictive! 5oz $3.99. Pair it in your after dinner cheese plate, with strong-flavored, soft cheeses like a Brie de Meaux, Le Montagnard, Délice de Bourgogne or Stilton, complemented by a robust port or sherry.
