[GL] that beautiful time of the year is returning - when you can stroll freely in kensington market without shivering your way quickly into the nearest store to get your things to get home quickly. it's also time to stroll along queen street west for birkenstocks :)

nonetheless, this past sunday, we were faced with a more or less impromptu wine + cheese gathering which we pulled off pretty well - although, we had to run to chapters to visit our favourite reference book: Cheese: A Connoisseur's Guide to the World's Best.

mm decided it was time to get his own books, and so they arrived yesterday from amazon and we took them out eagerly and opened them up. of my favourite "lines" or quotes thus far include these two.

the first is from Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 Homemade Cheeses by Ricki Carroll:

If I had a son who was ready to marry, I would tell him: "Beware of girls who don't like wine, truffles, cheese, or music."

phew, i'm glad i passed the test :) mm, you're a lucky guy, haha.

and the second, went something like this, from The Murray's Cheese Handbook: A Guide to More Than 300 of the World's Best Cheeses by Rob Kaufelt:

". .my best or favorite cheese memory is not tasting a perfect Piave in Italy, but it's from when I was eight and I ate cheeseburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches."
