East of Edam

What goes better together than wine and cheese? Authors and cheese. The Airship paired ten gourmet cheeses with famous writers. Virginia Woolf goes well with a Bayley Hazen Blue. “This Stilton-like blue is a mix of narratives – the Mrs. Dalloway of cheeses, if you will.”

    Not quite on point, and includes TV characters, but what about:

    a.) Rumpole of the Bailey and Brie (just so he can shout “Bringgg Me My Brie!”) to She Who Must Be Obeyed.

    b.) Edith Pargeter’s Brother Cadfael and a nice Shropshire Blue on a bed of medicinal herbs.

    c.) Agatha Christie’s Poirot and a suspicious Limburger on black bread.

    Just tweeted H. James as gorgonzola. I live in Cornwall, where yarg is made: soft & creamy, wrapped in luscious green nettle leaves – DH Lawrence lived for a time near Zennor, was arrested as a spy with Frieda on suspicion of signalling to WWI German subs because they had mismatched curtains in their cottage; his writing is lyrically poetic at heart, but with an acerbic outer edge…So, Lawrence as yarg.
