I have creamy Valdeón on hand… does that count?? More reasons in support of good, healthy, well-made real foods defying the doctors. You get the feeling that we’re bound to come full cycle back to eating small. local and well… if we can just get out of our own way.

“Eating Roquefort cheese could help guard against cardiovascular disease despite its high fat and salt content, according to new research that suggests why the French enjoy good health. The properties of the blue cheese, which is aged in caves in the south of France, were found to work best in acidic environments of the body. Scientists discovered the French cheese, known for its mould and green veins, has specific anti-inflammatory properties.

It could provide clues to the “French paradox” and explain why people who live in the country enjoy good health despite favouring a diet high in saturated fat.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
