Fruit and Cheese
You know how sometimes one thought hopscotches to the next and you find yourself in the library searching for a book about Thomas Jefferson's years in Paris and wondering just how, exactly, you got there?
I started by thinking about Bastille Day, July 14, a patriotic holiday in France. Bastille Day led me to thinking about French food, which led me to
cheese fondue (which is Swiss, turns out, in spite of the fact that this one is called French Onion Fondue). Which led me to a book about cheese, written by a poet who mentions Moby-Dick and cheese curd in the same sentence and makes it seem like a natural pairing. That led me to my Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook
So here's a sandwich. A fine snack or part of a meal when it's too hot to cook.
Bread (skinny baguettes are good)
Cheese (Mascarpone, a sweetened cream cheese that, turns out, is from Italy, not France)
Backyard or grocery store peach, sliced
Put the cheese on a slice of the bread. Put a slice of peach on the cheese. Eat.
