Prom usually consists of three parts: pre-prom, prom, and post-prom. Pre-prom involves parents taking photos of their children with their children's dates, exchanges of corsages and bouttenaires, and hors d'oeuvres on silver trays making its rounds for takers. After the corsage-bouttenaire exchange with my date (it is impossible to pin on the bouttenaire without the flower falling lop-sided or the pin sticking dangerously out enough to stab someone) and an entire Facebook album full of traditional prom photos, I scouted the room for my favorite bite-sized snacks. In one corner of a large reception room, hidden behind crowds of teenagers taking photos of every combination, I found my go-to absolute favorite snack: cheese. I kept company with the cheeses, which were lonesomely forgotten in the corner. I was impressed by the selection of 6 cheeses from Murray's Cheese; in fact, I wasn't familiar with two of them! I would've expected the usual Brie, aged Cheddar, and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
From the left bottom corner and clockwise, the cheeses are Brunet (Pasteurized Goat), Westfield Capri (Pasteurized Goat), Casatica (Pasteurized Buffalo), Blu del Moncenisio (Pasteurized Cow), Fiore Sardo (Raw Sheep), and Castelrosso (Pasteurized Cow). In this cheese plate, I particularly enjoyed Brunet, Fiore Sardo, and the Blu del Moncenisio.
All in all, I was fueled up on cheese and ready for the next two parts of prom!
