in vino veritas

My mother lives next to a very dangerous man. I knocked on his door just to say hello and suddenly I was in to his basement surrounded by lots of little wine barrels, glass in hand.

I sampled. And sampled. And then there was food to taste with the wine of course - almonds, chocolate, olives, peppered sausage and oh, God, the stilton.

I can't be trusted with stilton.

And my glass was refilled, as if by magic, again and again. My husband, bless him, saw that I was becoming a little too giggly than was wise and took me home.

I slept very, very well.

I coulda used a couple barrels of vino after a weekend spent in (Northern) hillbilly hell...

Sounds like you had fun, tho'!

I'm guessing it wasn't the blue cheese that made you giggly.

Or drowsy.

A good Stilton is God made cheese.

mmmmmm...
Stilton.....

The cheese shop near my home sells (wait for it!):

Stilton With Mango

I'd try it, but they say it's a gateway cheese.

Actually, I have tried Danish blue, alternated with sips of red wine and slices of ripe Bartlett pears. Yum!

Anytime you require an escort and food-taster (and wine-taster) - just to make sure you don't eat or drink anything that won't be good for you, you understand - may I apply for the job?

Char-grilled filet mignon wrapped in smoked bacon topped with stilton cheese and port wine shallot sauce.
The best way to enjoy stilton that I can remember!
Sounds like boring Sundays will be a thing of the past for you Breda; good deal!

Curse all of you.
