The cheese that you saw in this post before aging looked like this when I cut it, about four months later, and was worth the wait. Even after three and a half years of making cheese, the moment I insert the blade into one has the same suspense and the first bite the same thrill as the very first time. This homemade canestrato was a rewarding surprise.
The second surprise is that this week, I have the honor of hosting Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event. Send your contribution at simosite AT mac DOT com, namely
- your name
- your blog's name
- the image(s) (max 500 px wide, either orientation)
You have until Monday, May 14 at 6 pm Eastern time to do so. If you are unfamiliar with the event or need a reminder of the rules, you will find the details in this post. Feel free to use the logo below (it can also be found here). If you have a photo, but no blog, send it to me and I will include it in the roundup, which will be published on Wednesday, May 16.

And the third surprise is that May 15 marks the fifth anniversary of briciole. To celebrate another milestone of my blogging journey, I will send a little gift to a randomly chosen participant of the event I am hosting this week. What the gift will be is, as you can imagine, a surprise, which I will announce together with the winner, on May 16.
This is my first contribution to edition #32 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and hosted this week by Simona of briciole.
The photo was shot in color and then converted to sepia.
This post contains the gallery of photos submitted to the event.
