Roquefort, toast, Venus

Roquefort , made from ewes' milk and matured in the caves of the region, is the greatest of cheeses. A couple of slices with some chicory leaves, tossed in a sauce of honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard and olive oil, is extraordinarily good.

The smell of toast and the bubbling sound of eggs boiling.

Venus, the "evening star", hangs in the greenish, south westerly sky, brighter than the moon in the north east; it is, to day, the "afternoon star".
