Cheese and change
Cheeses, still eating many different types.
I’ve learned that soft goat cheese goes really well with spinach.
I love mozzarella and tomato salad, adding some basil makes it perfect.
I learned that taking the cheese out of the fridge 30 minutes before eating will improve the taste tremendously.
A few years ago I blogged that I would not return to Dubai Mall, that I did not like Moroccan baths. I did not like fish, I’d never eaten duck. Because I had never done it I didn’t like it, but I also didn’t know it.
Now I shop at the mall weekly, I love being scrubbed by a Moroccan lady in a steam filled room and I argue with fish sellers about the freshness of the fish based on the color or the eyes and gills. I’ve ordered duck at a Chinese restaurant and will be cooking one for the first time this weekend.
Many things I use to think are weird or unapproachable are now part of my norm.
Never say never.
