Heaven is Cheese

Looking back at Christmas 09- one of the fun things we did while in NYC is browse leisurely through the Grand Central Station Market. And my favorite, hands down, booth in the market was Murray's Cheese. Friends and readers know I love cheese. And it is a continued trial and tribulation that here in Japan cheese is hard to come by and quite expensive- So seeing these rows and rows of cheeses was just heaven. I wanted to try everything!

We picked 5 and got small amounts cut for us by the fantastic and knowledgeable staff and then that night back at our friend's house where we were staying we had a tasty cheese plate, salami and some champagne. YUM.

The cool thing at Murray's is reading all the cheese descriptions. They know everything about cheese and are more than happy to share that knowledge. For those of you who want to know more about cheese and for anyone stateside you can go to the Murray's website and read, browse and order. sadly they can't ship to me here in Japan.

I was wondering if you would like to exchange links. I’ll drop yours on my site and you drop mine on yours. Email at or stop by my site and drop a comment. Let me know if you would like to do a link exchange.
