When we hit post number one hundred, we put a lot of thought into what to write. This post just happens to be number two hundred. I hadn’t really planned on doing anything special for this post, yet somehow, I find myself with the ideal subject. This time through serendipity rather than through inspired labor. Today, rather than spam, my inbox was full of cheese.
First was an email from one of the world’s great centers of cuisine and cheese, Italy. Slow Food International announces “the sixth edition of CHEESE, the biennial festival celebrating cheese in all its shapes and forms”. The festival will take place from September 21 – 24 in Bra, Italy. Four days of the art, science and beauty of cheese as only Slow Food can do it.
The second email came from another mecca of cheese, Manhattan. Um, yeah, Manhattan. That is the home of Murray’s Cheese. Murray’s sells cheese imported from Europe and brought down from just up the way in Vermont. They also offer cheese classes and cheese tourism. They also have their own cheese cave where visitors can get a glimpse of the (actually kinda boring) magic of cheesemaking.
We may not be able to swing a trip to Italy anytime soon, but Manhattan can bring Italy, and the world, to us. New York is definitely creeping up our to-do list.
In the meantime, thanks for reading our cheesy blog. Best wishes from your cheesy bloggers.
