Elizabeth Manchester: My Life As A Cheese Elf: Working The Night Shift At Murray’s Cheese Shop

“So many of our favorite holiday stories take place sometime in the past, in faraway, magical lands like the North Pole, Whoville and the wilds of Hohman, Ind. My holiday story is no different. Two holiday seasons ago, in a botched and quarter-hearted attempt to become a freelance food writer — and to put myself in close proximity to my favorite dairy product for extended periods of time — I worked at the Mecca of cheese and a true New York institution: Murray’s Cheese Shop. For anyone who loves New York City and/or great food, a trip to Murray’s Greenwich Village location on Bleecker Street is, inexplicably, simultaneously boatloads of fun and as sacred as the impending arrival of a baby who, regardless of whether or not you believe in him, is the impetus for mass gift buying and an abundance of “ho ho ho” and mistletoe.”

Salutation Recipes

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.
