By Rachael Lucas Romania kind of got the shaft. It is situated, strategically speaking, in a military sweet spot.

By Rachael Lucas Cheese begs to be paired. It is such a versatile food that it can stand up to and enhance flavors in just about anything you choose as its coupling.
By Rachael Lucas Husk. Coat. Bloom. I called it skin before I knew the appropriate term for that bizarre superstratum that exists on cheese.
