Here in the USA we just wrapped up Thanksgiving and all across Christendom there will be Adventitious celebrations over the next few weeks - all of which means a whole lot of cheese plates set out for noshing along with dips and fanned-out crackers while guests bide their time until called to the dinner table -- is this the right time for the cheese course, or do you favor saving the cheese for after the main dishes have been downed?
Is a cheese course too much of an affectation if you aren't of French extraction? This might not seem so important except that I am keeping score. /s
This would be on mind because of the feasting season anyway, but it so happens that I just tucked into some Cathedral City mature white cheddar, which claims to be the most popular cheddar in the UK, now available in your local US hypermarché.
