THE Cheese Night

I love to cook, and I love to feed my loved ones.  So inevitably I have a lot of supper parties.
One though has stood out in the memories of all that were present. It is now know as THE Cheese Night!
This is because - due to some kind of oversight - I managed to serve a 4 course supper, with each course incorporating cheese in some way. I love cheese but even for me that was very extreme.  
The Menu read...
Nachos with Cheese, Salsa, Guacamole and Sour Cream

Caramelised Garlic and Goats Cheese Tart with a Green Salad

Cheese and Biscuits

Caramel and Macadamia Nut Baked Cheese Cake

The thing was all that cheese had a rather interesting physical affect... as you can imagine. 
One particular male friend did not do well from it, after going slight mental in a onepiece - see below - he went home to dream about shooting a policeman at point blank range in the face! DARK TIMES!

Anyway on a more uplifting note, the bestest food in the world comes from the Ottelenghi cook book, both books are fab and I highly recommend that you go out and purchase them, if you are lucky enough to be near one of their shops you can get a signed copy! Woop Woop!
Many people are all down on the books, 'too hard' 'to complicated' 'cant do it' and all that stuff, but this is not the case I promise! Their recipes are almost failsafe and much of the cooking is preparation, the actual cooking bit tends to be a leave it in the oven job, so we can all go watch X-factor these cold winter nights.
