More Cheese

Today's lunch from Ideal Cheese:

- Shropshire Blue - a creamy, yellow cow's milk blue. Very similar to Stilton, but almost seems to have a cheddar flavor, but that could just be the color of the cheese playing tricks with my mind.

- Zamarano - an aged sheep cheese from Spain. Reminds me of Ballerina from the Puget Sound area. A little nutty. Very nice.

- Societe Roquefort - the famous blue from France. A creamy, slightly runny sheep cheese. I like it, but not as much as I like St. Agur.

- Farmer Joe's Mozarella - a local mozarella. Very nice, especially with prosciutto.

- Borata Mozarella - my, oh, my. I can eat this cheese all day. Cheese stuffed with cream and shredded cheese?? Ridiculously good.

Here's hoping I can get the leftovers through security at the airport.

**UPDATE: They made it through.**

Not Hunkering Down

Umair Haque asks us to think constructively about health care.

For those not into hundred page McKinsey reports, this is as good a summary as you're going to see on the current state, hypotheses on how we got here, and questions we need answered.

The Best?

The Harvard Business Review asks a tough question and presents findings that question an old assumption. Is the USA #1?

Ideal Cheese

I was just introduced to Ideal Cheese, a cheese store in Manhattan. Instead of buying lunch and dinner, I bought 1.5 lbs of cheese, a spicy chorizo, and Serrano (basically Spanish prosciutto). Mmmmmmm. The

Muacia Curado - an aged goat cheese that is already completely eaten

St. Agur - a creamy blue (the best blue I've ever had by the way)

5 Year Old Gouda - the crystallized amino acids make these cheese a must have at any cheese party

were all amazing. Have I mentioned that I love cheese?
