Belated Nuit Blanche Cheese Party Pics

Nuit Blanche qua Nuit Blanche was a bit meh, but the pre-party Sheena hosted for various flotsam and jetsam of the Toronto/Ottawa blogoforumsphere was a hit.

Deluxe Suite at the Grand Hotel on Jarvis... a little hot tub action before the guests show, pit stop at the Cheese Boutique and a lovely assortment of nuts.



Went for the previously blogged faves: The lovely Mimolette (very sharp shard-like aged gouda), the eternal love of my life Bouq' Emissaire, the mellow Separatiste Benedictine Bleu.

But Sheena has a rule that she will never leave the Cheese Boutique without trying at least one new thing. The fromage du jour on this visit was over the top whoa baby come here often. A rosemary-olive oil bathed goat cheese that has an amazing deep nutty slightly bitter taste. A keeper.

And I am only getting around to posting this finally as a FU to Raymi because I discovered the flaky faux communion crackers FIRST fcs. They were 2 for 1 that weekend.

Be jealous and hate me for my Crate and Barrel real slate cheese plate for which I spent 2 months sourcing chalk...

That was a good time.

Pity I had another engagement to go to. ;)

My ex-girlfriend called me the Cheese Monster - it's my favourite food ever invented. Probably would look gross to an alien watching us - bad milk from another animal and all - but god it is sooooo good.

Ditto the Romantic Heretic.

We who were leaving for the airport decided to take the long way there once we got a call about a half-hour delay and drove Queen Street West to take in the sights.

Dog Poo park was the most interesting.
