cheese tasting notebook and pen setby Merrie Buchsbaum & Dave Selden
- the story
Food for Thought?
Don't put up a stink when you can't recall that bit brie, bleu, chevre, or Swiss at the market! Pair this petite and practical cheese diary and pen with any piece, slice, wedge, or crumble to savor every last detail long after you've finished the final morsel. Designed to be stowed in your bag, purse, or pocket, this streamlined pen and notebook set packs a high-design punch and possess an extra special edge: dried cheddar or a few drops of cow's milk impart the notebook's ink and the pen's resin with its characteristic creamy hue.
Fill in the essentials as you delight in every delectable bite, as well as a rating out of five stars, and the texture, from velvety ricotta to grated parmesan. A flavor wheel helps you identify tang, earth, brininess, robust and subtle flavor notes, and more. Once filled, this compact journal holds every ounce of detail from your 33 most recent tastings and serves as an invaluable reference for both connoisseurs and casual nibblers.
