Anthony and I spend so much of our time together. We frequent the movie theater and regularly dine out. While I realize this may not always be the case, for us childless, semi-newlyweds, that is just our romantic everyday living. We choose to intentionally celebrate our marriage monthly, at a minimum. Date night for us usually involves us trying something new, since that is what we enjoy. Sometimes that’s an activity, or a restaurant, and sometimes it is trying a new recipe at home.
August’s date night consisted of a cheese class at Antonelli’s Cheese House and bottle of cider from the Austin-based Argus Cidery. If you’re in Austin, or visiting Austin, I highly recommend a visit. Even if you don’t make advance reservations for a class, you can pick up a few tasty cheese varieties for a picnic or a party.
We were given half a pound of cheese each, divided into seven styles, served with baguette, olives, and macaroni almonds, as well as different pairings such as white honey and mustard violet.
Fun fact: Cheddar is orange because cows cannot process beta carotene. Sheep’s milk or goats milk cheese won’t turn the same orangey hue.
