At the Cheesemonger Invitational, in Long Island City : The New Yorker

Nice review of the recent Invitational. A challenging day for mongers!

 

“At 9:30 on a recent Saturday morning, in a Long Island City warehouse that smelled a bit funky, fifty-two people sat at two long tables, hunched over exams. At each seat was a sign with the test taker’s name and place of business, a slate slab, and a cutting board. The proctor, Adam Moskowitz, walked down the aisle, his steps echoing in the vast space. Suddenly, something caught his eye, and he squeaked to a halt.

“Murray’s Cheese, yo! Who’s worked at Murray’s?”

About ten hands went up.

“Yeah! That’s what I’m talkin’ about! Lineage. Lin-e-age.”

The first hour of the fourth annual Cheesemonger Invitational was underway.”

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.
