    Stronger than the last wheel I had in the States. Saltier and a more pronounced bite.
    Not 100% certain but I think this may have been the first Spring milking Stich I've had.... Creamier and more complex.

    Daphne Zepos passed away this morning.

    You might not know her name but she was critical to the development of the artisan cheese movement in the US.

    She started Essex Street in NYC... responsible for bringing Comte St. Antoine and the finest Parmigiano Reggiano to our country. She founded, with Mac McCalman, Artisanal's education program. She was a key instructor at the cheese school in San Francisco.

    I was looking forward to meeting her and studying but she fell ill the week before the class... turned out to be cancer.

    RIP Daphne.

    some friends are coming over for a cheese and charcuterie little dinner type thing. I am very excited. Hopefully I can score some St. Andre. Other than that, no idea what I'll do.

    I would go but... I'll be leaving from the gym, Whole Foods is on the way home(ish) and traffic will be hellacious enough.

    Love that place so much though... maybe I will detour I'm crazy like that.

    Took a chance that there would be reduced traffic and went to *

    I was rewarded. Got this for me and a friend

    Caveman blue, brillat savarin, gruyere and a vt washed. Cheddar that esacapes me. House cured salamis and their olive mix. Morello cherry preserves in the middle. I'm sure I violated some serving rules but whatever. Only finished the bs and meat. Have a ton of cheese and I'm leaving the country soon. Probably cheesed out for a bit, too. As much as I love cheese and charcuterie two successive Friday dinners is my limit.
