How to say cheese in different languages.

We're a global community. We live in a world of cheap flights. The chances of you travelling are high. Though are you ready to explore? Are you really ready? Have you covered the important things? And no, I don't mean knowing where your travel documents, cash or credit cards are. I don't mean knowing where your Airbnb is, or if you've left a contact number with loved ones. None of the above are important. What I want to know is can you say 'cheese' in a Read More...

Mistaken identicheese.

Let's not beat about here. This is what we're here to discuss: https://twitter.com/James_Dator/status/888879298349867009?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E888879298349867009&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sbnation.com%2Flookit%2F2017%2F7%2F24%2F16019286%2Fsquash-cheese-grocery-store This sets the scene perfectly. One man goes to the store for groceries, the other goes because butternut squash isn't cheese. Now, most of us are aware the butternut squash isn't cheese, but the store assistant tried to be helpful: https://twitter.com/James_Dator/status/888879666148331521 The customer says it wasn't clearly labelled. Which is fair enough. https://twitter.com/James_Dator/status/888879837116588032?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E888879837116588032&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sbnation.com%2Flookit%2F2017%2F7%2F24%2F16019286%2Fsquash-cheese-grocery-store Our hero suggests otherwise. The store offered a refund. https://twitter.com/James_Dator/status/888880731988140034?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E888880731988140034&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sbnation.com%2Flookit%2F2017%2F7%2F24%2F16019286%2Fsquash-cheese-grocery-store The customer wanted cheese. Cheap cheese! https://twitter.com/James_Dator/status/888881180879269889?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E888881180879269889&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sbnation.com%2Flookit%2F2017%2F7%2F24%2F16019286%2Fsquash-cheese-grocery-store He wanted cheap cheese AND he had guests Read More...

Gingerbread Stilton

Happy nearly Christmas everyone. We know it's nearly Christmas not by the old fashioned ways (looking at calendars / the crazed look in our children's eyes) but by the release of Christmas cheeses! Today's festive take is Gingerbread Stilton. There's even a wee Gingerbread man on show! Robyn Figueira, Buying Manager at Ocado, says that 'Gingerbread and cheese might seem like a strange mix at first, but thanks to the white stilton’s clean and fresh taste, this flavour combination really works.' So Gingerbread Stilton. Read More...
