Smoked Provolone
This week’s Cheese of the Week is a lovely smoked provolone. The level of smokiness is wonderful; it plays with you, it teases you, but it never overwhelms you. The texture is creamy and luscious. It was difficult to put it down and leave the rest for tomorrow.

What’s also pleasant is the price. At $8.99/lb at Whole Foods, I’d call it a bargain. With a half-pound of this cheese, fresh fruit, french bread and a nice wine, I think you’d have yourself a nice lunch or dinner for two on one of these hot sunny days.

    Smoked provolone? How do you manage to keep the cheese lit? ☜ Obligatory cliché pun
