Here is some real cheese

Between Four and Five pounds of Baby Swiss direct from the vats and agitators of Phil Mueller's Minerva Cheese Factory, Minerva Ohio.

You should try it. Not as dry as ordinary swiss, a little softer, a little more yellow in color, perhaps not quite as holey. I liked it a lot.

Phil has won prizes with this cheese and well he should.

Though of course I must confess that he is my cousin and I am a cheesehead from childhood. Still, I don't know why that should bias you all that much. It didn't me. Brett who? Never heard of him.





















It goes very well with our Washington state Riesling, lovely apples and pears beyond expectation.

And it keeps very well in the fridge with a little Saran wrap around it.

We received this lovely cheese about the middle of December. I sampled a portion on 5 Jan 2010. It tasted the same as the middle of December. This is the real thing.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
