If you are old enough and English enough…..
…..you may remember the slogan from the 1970s
‘Cheese please, Louise’
However, there are hidden dangers here because
there are more than one type of cheese…..
…..in other words…..
…..more than just the cheese you eat
Some of you will have managed artfully to swerve…..
…..the cheese associated with Valentine’s Day…..
…..that’s the 14th February to all the singletons out there !
Question ? ? ? ? ?
What is romantic about sitting in a restaurant with your moll
surrounded by dozens of other momentarily happy couples…..
Him thinking, ‘This had better be worth it !’
Her thinking, ‘I know where this is heading !’
Then, of course, you have the fawning waiter (ress)
who is visibly thinking………….
‘You poor girl !’
So take a top tip…..
Do this thing on the 13th or the 15th and spare the smaltz
and the tons of cheese that comes with it !
There is however a very hip spot in town that opened recently
…..where you can indulge yourself with hogget pappardelle
No, that is not a misprint…..
…..nor should it be hobbit…..
…..hogget is an old lamb or alternatively a young sheep
Truly wondrous !
The G.-moll was having culinary knee-tremblers
Bless her ! ! !
Eventually she regained her composure and…..
I steamed into the caprino cheese with honey…..
Only this cheese was heaven but the honey had a kick
to it not unlike hot horseradish
‘Excuse me’, I asked the cute attendant, ‘What type of
honey am I enjoying?’
The answer resolved the issue
‘That’s not honey, Sir, that’s mustard fruit’
Sensing an opportunity the Groover pounced…..
So after swallowing my last mouthful I said……
‘In that case would you kindly bring me caprino and honey’
‘Err, yes, Sir’, came the reply
Two helpings of the mouth-watering cheese for the price
…..and the mustard fruit wasn’t bad either !
However, not all of you have access to St. James, London so
let me offer an alternative…..
…..buy a ‘Pie D’Angloys’ from M&S, cheese from the Pays de Loire
…..eat it with honey and float away on a cloud of pleasure
Of course not all cheese is great…..
…..and if hygiene is not high on the agenda…..
…..somebody might get more than they bargained for !
Take another tip, stick to M&S
