Make me a dang quesadilla!

I had a light lunch and now I'm hungry and I want some cheese. But I'm at work and there's no cheese here. *cries* What's your favorite kind of cheese? Tell me all about cheese and perhaps that will ease my craving. :'(...

Yet another food-ku

I have spent so much time shopping, wrapping and cleaning that I haven't had more than a cup of soup in over 24 hours. I was at the point where I was so hungry it made me nauseous to think of food. I am now easing myself in with tea and am looking forward to a cheese sandwich. O My Cheese Sandwich! With Ossau and a bagel come to my rescue!...

A house made of cheese? I'd move in tomorrow!

Sheri has requested a story about cheese. And I am a people-pleasing kind of people. All of my life, I've been rather obsessed with cheese. Not necessarily with eating it or being a connoisseur - because I only really developed a taste for exotic cheeses in the last year - but mostly with the word and the concept of "cheese". In middle school, "cheesy" (and its middle-school-French translation, fromagey) was one of our favorite words. We used it in the normal connotation, of something that was kitschy or ridiculous, but I seem to remember also going through a period where...

Would you like some Fourme d'Ambert with that St-Pourçain?

Before I left for Grenoble, I would tell people I was going to live in France for a year, and they would inform me that I was going to return full of valuable knowledge about wine and cheese. I did eat some cheese and drink some wine during the year, but not huge amounts of either. I never knew what I was eating or drinking because it was whatever was in the bottle or the cheese box at my host family's house, and it didn't make much difference to me. I found a cheese or two that I liked and...

Ann Arbor, cultural mecca

"You can't find herbes de Provence in the US," said an unidentified person named Renata who shall not be named, "and if you do, they're super-expensive." I just want to make the observation that not only did I find reasonably-priced herbes de Provence in every grocery store I went to today, but I have also managed to locate Salers, Fourme d'ambert, Bleu d'Auvergne, St-Nectaire, and Tomme. Strangely enough, no Cantal so far, but Salers is close enough for now. Boo-yeah. Thank you, Ann Arbor, for being a weirdy-beardy hippie-town full of people who eat things like imported cheeses and organic...

I'm the cheese whiz

English is "cheese". German is "käse". Spanish is "queso". Portuguese is "queijo". All very similar words. So where the heck does "fromage" come from?...
