This week I have been thinking about Brie. We are still savoring the treasure of cheese we brought home from Blue Heron French Cheese Company but I know it will soon be gone!!! I need a magic cheese drawer that keeps itself full of all the best goodies. Though if I had such a thing the consequences might be disastrous . . . Anyway, while I was working on Sunday’s post on our trip to Blue Heron, Jonathan came across a great cooking blog called The Reluctant Gourmet which has some useful and hilarious cheese writing.
Once upon a time I was unfamiliar with any cheese outside of cheddar, mozzarella, cream cheese and the like. It took time for me to come out of my cheese hidey-hole and try some new things. If you want to learn more about cheese, Reluctant Gourmet shares some really informative and fun facts about cheese. I also saw some good cooking tutorials on his page. I know I will be back over and over to perfect some of my kitchen skills. He simply has great resources.
As I was poking around I found his interview with Cheeseman Jack and I just could not stop laughing! Sometimes I feel so annoyed with hoity-toity “foodies” who seem to like things just because they think they “should.” So annoyed, in fact, that when my husband asked if we were becoming foodies I vehemently denied it! The fact is still not settled in our household. . .
I loved Cheeseman Jack’s thoughts on people and cheese so much I’m contemplating adding a stop in Philadelphia to our next road trip. Meanwhile I’m going to be a smarter cheese buyer for sure!!!
