The Cheese Man

Cheese Man

 e sold one cheese, Doux de Montagne, and talked as you tasted, explaining the flavors of each bite and why they differed.

I was enthralled. Someone asked what was different about the fields. With a typical tilt of the head, he smiled and replied in the sing-songy drawl of his Provençal accent, “Le soleil.” Someone repeated quizzically, “Le soleil?” “Ben oui, le soleil” (but of course), and he proceeded to explain: “You see, on that side of the street they have shade from that house, and over here we have the sun. In the fields there are mountains, and some fields have a lot of sun and others not as much. Like I said, c’est le soleil.

As I moved on I could see a twinkle in his eye and hear the delight in his voice as he continued to explain the wonders of his cheese.
