"Oh for the Love of Cheese SALE"




I am a HUGE lover of cheese....all cheese. California and Wisconsin really have some amazing cheese, but for over-the-top heavenly cheese I indulge in French cheese.  WHILE IN FRANCE, I OFTEN WILL ENJOY A LEISURELY LUNCH ON THE LAWNS FACING THE EIFFEL TOWER EATING NOTHING BUT BREAD, SELECTION OF CHEESES AND WINE!


Roquefort is especially yummy so long as you can handle the visible mold indicative of a true blue cheese.


On his way out of office, George W. Bush has decided to triple the import duties on the French cheese in response to the European Union's refusal to import the hormone-laden American beef. QUEL HORROR!

I don't eat red meat and I don't live in France so the latter doesn't affect me. However the duty on French cheese does!!!

In fact,  the president of  France's cheese home region, Martin Malvy, has sent President-elect Obama a specially sealed box of Roquefort to celebrate his swearing in. Monsier Malvy explained: "The inauguration of Barack Obama is a source of great hopes, particularly of better relations between the United States and Europe. I therefore sent this prestigious product of the Pyrenees," What a funny gift! A case of stinky, pungent cheese! Silly French!
My little gift to counteract this annoying duty increase to my beloved Roquefort cheese.....is....well A SALE * SALE * SALE * SALE * SALE!

A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life in New York City to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.

Enjoy
