THIS GIRL's Pick of the the WEEK: Cheese Tasting Party Kit

I was in my favorite San Diego independent bookstore The Grove which besides carrying our book always has the most interesting and unusual books and gifts to offer.

The Cheese Tasting Party Kit caught my eye with its clever concept and delightful packaging. The book is written by Janet Fletcher and filled with beautiful photos by Victoria Pearson. It comes with toothpicks, cheese cards, die-cut cards and suggestions on what wines to drink with your cheeses. Definitely an excuse to have a party and eat lots gourmet cheese.
