a wedding miracle

So the caterer had a list of cheeses they were going to serve, which was fine, but some of them were kind of boring. So i suggested Nevat & Etorki, which are two of our favoritest cheeses in the whole wide world. Fine and dandy.

Except that Formaggio didn't have them. And then Whole Foods (multiple locations) didn't have them, and couldn't order them in less than a week.

At which point, I did what any of you foodwhorish people would do: I googled.

And this brought me the miracle of igourmet.com. How did i remain in ignorance of this genius website for so long? These nice people (and they were nice when i spoke to them on the phone) are sending me an entire wheel of Nevat and a half wheel of Etorki (they had at least a dozen of each in stock) along with 2 pounds of an exciting-sounding thing called Marygold, an aged dutch goat cheese flavored with marigold petals. And they are sending this direct to the caterer via Fedex, with a promise to overnight replacement cheeses if anything should be wrong with our order.

THAT is awesome.

holy crap... I have been so terribly remiss in not telling you about igourmet! MEA CULPA MEA CULPA.

You do know about chocosphere.com, don't you? more specialized, natch, but quite marvelous.

OK, my blog's name is relevant here, but I'm only writing to wish you well in your new journey.

And also to tell you that the coding for the igourmet link in your post is wrong. There's an extra quote mark at the end of the link so it comes up with a 404.
