Montreal: Wow!

My lovely wife and I recently spent a long weekend in Montreal which, in case you haven’t been following geo-politics, is still in Canada. My Canadian food experience has been limited to drinking Molson beer and eating very good oysters from New Brunswick (I think). But that is going to change, Continue reading “Montreal: Wow!”

If A Butterfly Flaps Its Wings…

The taste of a Manhattan that is shaken, compared to one that is stirred, is radically different. Why, I have no idea.

It wasn’t even that expensive. But it was wonderful stuff. So stop buying crap goat cheese from wherever you buy cheese, and pick up this stuff instead.
