I have always fancied the idea of sampling cheese. In fact, I often wonder if such courses exist (without the initial purpose of wine being the driven factor). I would love nothing more than to understand the philosophy of cheese and to be well informed about the different types, tastes, age, and the sweet and savoury recipes I can pare cheese with. I am always enthusiastic and baffled (in that order) when I walk past the cheese isle in a grocery store. I study the all kinds of cheese display, and I leave without purchasing any. I just have no idea. You’d say, well why don’t you take the risk and try? I have. truly. But each time I’ve decided to buy a new kind of cheese, I never liked the taste. I tend to buy them with a bitter taste because I am that clueless about cheese (though I love cheese).
It hit me this afternoon while I passed by the cheese section: I should probably find videos online that explain the different gazillion types of cheese out there. Although I would love to sample some given that to each their own; in the meantime, I could get a little more educated about cheese. So, I’ve decided to go ahead and do that. I am going to research cheese, all kinds of cheese, do all the necessary background research, and then go out and buy and sample cheese. I hope to blog about that experience, and not put on weight. Fingers crossed.
