When I had my "French Misconnection" in Marseille. That same bistro offered a cheese course. All of the cheese was served at room temperature and the cheese board would be passed from table to table if ordered. Between tables they would replenish the board.

Yes, we have problems with health inspectors over here.

A few years ago they went round the artisan cheese manufacturers telling them they had to replace the traditional slatted wood shelves that the cheeses were matured on with stainless steel shelves.......The cheeses went bad rather quickly!!

Eating cold cheese is a lot like eating cold chocolate. While it's not bad, it's better at room temp.

Hmmm! I disagree to a certain extent on the cold chocolate. Frozen chocolate on a tea biscuit is divine! Can't remember the name of them, but for a lonnnnng time we kept a box in the freezer to snack on in the evenings! Yummmm.

But I certainly agree on the cold cheese, that's a no-no... - has to be room temperature - be sure to take it out in advance!

I appreciate them trying to keep us safe, but it definitely not a black and white issue, common sense needs to be part of their inspection!

Must have been someone else. I haven't noticed common sense in "gubmint" yet.

Wait, what. You said you saw me? HOW BIG do you think I am???? Redeem yourself and say you were using a high-powered telescope.

Aha! I couldn't clean my lens last night of two little specks moving around on it. Now I know it was you guys! Please wave flags next time so I stop trying to scrub you off.
