I have always known it, but now I have a word for it- Turophile. I love cheese and I consider myself a cheese connoisseur. I defiantly fancy cheese..... Oh yes! I love the tartness of swiss, the delectable firm texture of sliced cheddar cheese on a crispy cracker- I put cheese on everything. Growing up every time I went out to eat I wouldn't even have to look at the menu, it would always be a Grilled Cheese. . . Cheese, cheese, cheese, please, please, please.

The reason I am letting you know of one of my greatest downfalls is that I am going to be in a new country, with an entirely different language, and I discovered I don't know how to say cheese in Greek. I am going to teach myself only a few words before arrival, and cheese is one of them.


This is how you would pronounce cheese in Greek. If all else fails and the food isn't appealing to my taste I will just mutter "TEEREE!" And I know I will be satisfied!

Yes, it's true I just dedicated a whole blog to cheese.

Say Cheese!
