In honor of National Cheese Day, here is the long awaited cheese poem by Lilian Jackson Braun (with some of my additions) in The Cat Who Said Cheese:
I think I shall never see
A better cheese than one called Brie.
My brother goes for Danish blue (or rather, string cheese);
My father is nuts for Port du Salut.
Some folks all declare
The tops in cheese is Camembert.
To each his own, but as for me,
I cast my vote for creamy Brie. (or Gruyère or Gouda or Goat… I like the ‘G’ cheeses)
Enjoy your day! I hope it includes some great cheese.
All Hail Cheese/Fromage/Käse,
P.S. If you’re not inspired yet, here’s a link to a grilled cheese recipe from my ever favorite Wine Spectator magazine!
