We went with some friends to the temple of excellence that is Mission Cheese in San Francisco last Sunday, after catching the Cindy Sherman show at the MOMA. If flights of cheese and charcuterie– not to mention a respectable selection of wines and beers– are your thing, you might want to settle in for an afternoon at this place.

I should remember, (or at least have written down), the names of the cheeses we tried. I don’t, and I didn’t. Let’s not talk about it.

We had the Vermont flight and the New York flight. That’s all you’re getting out of me. Just enjoy the pretty cheeses.

  1. I had a cheese on a spanish tapas plate a few years ago and it drives me CRAZY to this day that I didn’t write down its name. It began with an M (not Manchego) but perhaps it didn’t because I’ve done searches and everything to try to figure it out. That could be a section on your blog – Dear Abby meets Raymond Chandler where people write in with their food (and memory) dilemmas and you can solve the mysteries of the missing and forgotten cheeses!
