Too much cheese

I’ve heard from a lot of you that there is simply no such thing as too much cheese. If that sounds like the kind of thing you’d say, make sure and go to TasteDC’s 2nd Annual International Cheese and Wine Festival on Nov. 15th (this Wednesday!). They’ll have over 40 international cheeses and up to 25 wines for unlimited tasting as well as a crepe station and Patisserie Poupon pastries for dessert.  This past February, I went to TasteDC’s 1st Annual International Cheese and Wine Festival (this annual thing must be in cheese-years), and because I’m stupid I made it a point to try all 40 cheeses. I strongly suggest you do not follow my example. It may sound easy, but even a small bite of 40 cheeses is really way too much cheese. Plus, there was one cheese that tasted like being punched in the face.  It was made with stinging nettles. I’d suggest you’d avoid that one altogether.

Details:  Wed. Nov. 15 from 6:30 pm-9:00 pm at the Whittemore House, home of the Woman’s National Democratic  Club, 1526 New Hampshire Ave., NW , near Dupont Circle .  (If you’re driving, get there right at 6:30 pm so you can find easy parking when the rush hour parking restriction ends).  Tickets are $75 in advance, $90 at the door.  You can also browse other TasteDC events on their website.

This year I’m definitely not going to try to eat all 40 cheeses. Maybe I’ll make it a new goal to try all 25 wines. What do you think?

    Or, skip the wine and cheese thing all together and go to the Belgian thing the next night and we can do a challenge to see who can sample the most beer since Moose won’t come back for it.

    Perhaps it has something to do with living in Wisconsin for 20 years, but I absolutely love cheese. Luckily, though I suffer from this addiction, I have no problems with cholesterol. I talked to a doctor about it once and he said, “ah yes, colored fat.” I also have a thing for pork and beer, go figure…

    Cheese is my absolute most favorite food, hands down. I just can’t justify spending $75 bucks to eat it though!

    So disappointing…
