A Delivery!

Have a look at what arrived today!

4 kilos of lovely yellow farm fresh butter and 2 1/2 kilos of farm fresh cheese!

We buy our cheese and butter from hubby's family home town of Rize.  Rize is a little village on the Black Sea coast of Turkey, very close to the Russian border.  It's a truly beautiful little piece of heaven on earth.  Famous for tea, the village is almost hidden amongst tiered tea plantations covering entire sides of mountains.  It's so green and so lush and the air is so crisp.  The few farmers who don't grow tea, tend small herds of goats and cows which they care for as though these animals are members of their own families.   What a perfect place from which to get our dairy products.

Guess where we're going to holiday when the weather warms up?

Here's a couple of pictures of me in Rize from a couple of years ago.
