Bica ≠ muenster
We are back for a second installment with this post. I was at my favorite store, talking to my favorite cheese man, and he presented me with this sign. The sign of BICA. "Made with cow, sheep, and goat milk. Complex, yet not overpowering." He told me they were never going to sell it again, and since I am the only one who likes the bica, I could have the sign. How thoughty. Just because no one bought, you never want to sell it again? I think that is slightly short sighted, but I am no cheese buyer, so I have no control. I think the people of west hartford, connecticut are losing out on one of the great cheeses of portugal, maybe of the world. At least I have the sign to remind me that there are great cheeses out there, even if they are unappreciated.
