Cheese tasting with hubby

So I decided to have a nice cheese tasting with the Hubby on Friday night… nice little romantic date night… and also get his impressions of the cheeses to see how they compared to mine.

Now, for anyone who knows my wonderful Jon, knows that in the lightening fastness that he actually consumes his food…. the likely hood of him actually tasting anything are usually around 50%. I explain the basics of cheese tastings… not giving him any info about the cheese first.. and wait for his first impression.

However my favorite one was this observation:

River’s Edge Chevre: Up in Smoke

Me: Ok, all I want is a visual. Tell me when you look at this, how would you describe it.

……….after several seconds of pause and contemplation

Jon: Mother Earth’s perfect little turd.

Nice! haha!  Not EXACTLY the insightful description I was looking for.

Oh Jon, I do love you!

It really is this perfect little puck wrapped in dark chocolate and auburn smoked leaves and the stark white of the fresh goat cheese is undeniably beautiful…. so although not reminicent of a turd to me.. I understood what he was trying to say, and he did say it with all seriousness and respect for the cheese.

It’s in my top 5 !
