Cottage cheese story and a movie worth watching


Yesterday night I got 200gm of cottage cheese from local market, and tried three recipes with it ,I prepared Cottage cheese curry for dinner as my cousin was there for night stay I had to treat her to something good ,Farrafel with cottage cheese for Advays tiffin and sandwich for our breakfast today which  me and my cousin happily went munching on our way to mall just opposite our building for Wake up Sid movie,…

Movies keep changing every friday, and all I can do is sigh whenever I see across the road from our balcony, so near yet so far that is the situation with me ,there are three malls near our residential area, but no time and company to go and take a break, or blame it on my hectic schedule so yesterday when my cousin came here for night stay ,she agreed for the movie though she had seen it ,so nice of her, but then who wont agree ,I can watch this movie again and again, so fresh and so real,….so today after a long long time I got to watch something which I truly enjoyed right from the start to the end,,…and good music too J I guess  i can go on and on raving about Wake up Sid,…don miss the movie u guys gonna luv it,..so coming back to cooking here goes the recipe of

A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life in New York City to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.
