The Cheese

Because we have completely refined palates, my sister Rachel and I have decided to sample and review area cheese plates.  The one pictured above is from Barbette.  We forgot to pay close enough attention to the descriptions of the cheese to actually tell you what they are.  The one on the left is a cow's milk, the one in the center is a sheep's milk, the one on the right is a blue.  That's all we know. Also, I forgot to take a photo of the plate before we started eating it, but you'll probably still appreciate the artfully drizzled balsamic glaze and thinly sliced apple.

Here's a rough transcript of our expert, sophisticated review:

Me: Which cheese was your favorite?
Rachel: I think the slab in the center.
Me: Didn't you like the thinly sliced apple?
Rachel: Yes!  It was very thinly sliced.
Me: What did you think of the chutney?
Rachel: I liked it, but I noticed you didn't eat all of yours.
Me: I liked the chutney with the cheese, but I didn't like it separately.
Rachel: Oh.
Me: If you were to rate the cheese plate on a scale of 1-10, what would you give it?
Rachel: I mean, it was good.
Me: Yeah, it was good.
Rachel: It would have been better with a glass of prosecco.
Me: Next time, let's get prosecco.
Rachel: Yeah.

And there you have it!  The cheese plate at Barbette is good, but better with a glass of prosecco.  You're welcome.

I love this and all it stands for. The quest, the picture, and the review.

I would like to have a cheese plate with you and your sis some day.
Let's make this happen.
