I know certain foods that I like to eat after smoking a cigar, like steak. Are there any dishes in particular that don't match well with cigars? Or does it all depend on the type of cigar?

I typically eat and then smoke a cigar, not the other way around. You'll find that there are certain cigars that can "floor" you if you don't have anything in your stomach. If you're going to smoke then eat I would suggest staying on the light to medium end of the flavor spectrum.

Thanks for the advice, Mister Saucy. I've done both, but I notice that when I smoke first it really affects my palate. I tend to eat small meals throughout the day, but I'll be careful if I plan to smoke a stronger cigar.

I would imagine eating anything sweet might taste "off" if you don't brush your teeth or something before you indulge. I usually don't eat soon after a smoking session, so this is never a problem for me.

This is why fine restaurants serve palate cleansers. A wonderful, lightly minted sorbet for dessert might be something you'd want to try at home or even when dining out.

That's a good idea corybird, thanks for the suggestion. I haven't been dining out as much lately, but I do recall that palate cleansers work pretty well. I suppose I'll go ahead and try doing this at home, that would save me money for more smokes.

I hardly eat after smoking a cigar, I am more likely to have a nice drink while I smoke. I agree with everyone though, if you eat after smoking, a palate cleanser is a must!

I don't combine food and cigar smoking since I like the tastes unadulterated and in full form. Why waste your taste buds and money when you can stretch out the pleasurable things in your life?

Just anything that you don't like eating in general or have an allergy to, I think.

Besides maybe cereal in the morning, I really can't imagine any food that wouldn't go with a good cigar! Of course, I don't mean at the same time. I mean, follow a good meal with a good cigar.
