Here here Bethalize!
I'm a great cheese lover (in fact, I held a cheese party with 22 different types of cheese for my 22nd birthday, just because!) and the cutting thing drove me NUTS! Especially when people took the point of the cheese That's the tastiest, most flavourful part!
22? 22? I am very, very IMPRESSED.
Well, I did cheat a little and have 4 different types of blue cheese (my favourite!). It was fairly pricey to host (considering I'm still a student), but man, I'd been dying to have a cheese party in ages.
I went nuts and wrote up descriptions of all the cheese, a recommended order for tasting (for cheeses on one plate, not for the whole thing!), etc etc. *sighs fondly*
Do you think people would object if I found 23 different types of blue cheese for my 23rd birthday this year?
