"Dal tavolo no si alza il saggio
se la bocca non sa di formaggio"
(The wise man doesn't get up from the table if his mouth doesn;t taste of cheese)
Personally, however, I don;t see how cheese can be considered a good ending to a meal. For me cheese IS the meal. Or the snack. I like it either way. But to end a meal with cheese seems to me to just repeat a protein course, and is redundant. And no, please, please don;t replace desert with cheese! One of the nicest things about a fancy meal is to wonder what wonderful desert it will end with!
That said, I know plenty of people like cheese courses at the end of meals. I do like cheese with sweet things, and can go on eating a piece of gorgonzola then think, hey, that needs a slice of pear. Then eat the pear and say, yeah, but what would be perfect after this is a nice slice of cheese. and so on through all the cheese and several pears. That would be lunch for me.
But if you're bringing out a cheese course, you might want to have something salty with it, some sort of cracker (carta da musica is great) or nice bread - walnut bread, for instance. Not everyone likes sweet stuff with cheese. Maybe have a choice.
This is also somewhat sweet, but very slightly so - a walnut quick bread. I think i posted it here somewhere - from Cakes by barbara maher. The touch of sweetnness and the clove are perfect for cheeses.
