cheesefags: SAGE DERBY. from Chris’ Cheese-Mongers at St. Lawrence Market. by Jordaan & Kyle
Derby is a British cheese that’s like cheddar, but usually younger. It doesn’t go through the “cheddaring” process where blocks of curds are stacked to expel moisture. Sage derby is made by mixing curds with sage leaves and sometimes green corn or spinach juice. Wikipedia says marigold leaves or parsley can also be used.
Anyway, this cheese is real tasty. The texture is crumbly, and is somehow dry and moist - it’s like it has the texture of a dry cheese but isn’t. It simultaneously melts and crumbles in your mouth. Nice.
Has a really interesting flavour profile. It starts out like a medium sharp kinda old cheddary cheese, but then makes this steady transition to having a really refreshing herby flavour. It’s not like a havarti where you taste the cheesiness and there’s just some herb or jalapeno or whatever shit in it, it really all just works as a unified flavour. And the herby flavour isn’t totally sagey, it’s just a sort of fresh, leafy flavour. And that flavour doesn’t take over, it just transforms the cheese flavour into something lighter. For a heavy cheese, you really don’t notice how much you ate…

thisriver: TTC’s new streetcar takes early morning maiden voyage down Bathurst Street “The TTC’s streetcar of tomorrow had its maiden voyage overnight, giving Toronto night owls a rare glimpse of the state-of-the-art ride.
“It was its first trip. We made it a short one, and we were very, very happy with it,” said TTC spokesperson Brad Ross.
The new car made a moonlit round trip from the TTC’s Hillcrest facility to Bathurst station, making it the first ride on a city street. The route was chosen to test a variety of streetcar capabilities, including wide turning, braking and a dip beneath a bridge.
Riders will get to experience the new ride when the TTC introduces the new streetcars on the 510 Spadina route in early 2014.” […]
Hey, folks who swivel sideways in their seat as people try to get past them on the subway or street car, how about you just stand up?
As a Torontonian and fellow TTC user, I second this so strongly! Embarassing that it takes a visitor to admit what we’re all thinking…

ryborg365: 02/04 - This might be the most impressive iPhone photo that I’ve ever taken. New City Hall juxtaposed over Old City Hall from a reflection in the Starbucks window. Oh, and this is right before my most successful and highly praised court appearance to date. Good day in Toronto.
