Thanks, Robin! Now I want some figs. I have no orange blossom honey as it is not among my favorites, but I have a nice, not-too-sweet, complex honey from the Nile Valley. Perhaps I'll try that.
No Sauternes, alas, as I am trying not to get the person stuck inside of me drunk, but I can pretend lol. (I'm not referring to my other personality, I'm pregnant)
Cheesecake is an excellent comparison. I don't smell ammonia so I will dive in. Thank you very much. My concern was mainly the lack of the flaky, chevre-like core but I'm not afraid of ripe cheese. If my Brie and such is capable of really holding its shape when cut, I don't even bother.
For the scientist, as for the poet, there are as many levels of wonder in the silent beat of a butterfly wing as in the howl of a wolf.
