My Life As A Cheese Elf: Working The Night Shift At Murray's Cheese Shop
Recently, Elizabeth Manchester jumped at the chance to be a part of the holiday bustle at Murray's Cheese Shop in NYC. Her assigned task? Wrapping online cheese orders for shipment. The verdict? Some things are better left to the professionals.
I was basically the cheese elf equivalent of Hermey, that poor little elf from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer who wanted to be a dentist! In any case, were it not for the efficiency and unending patience of the cheese cave manager and affineur, I probably would have perished in one of the subterranean temperature controlled caves, ruining dozens of perfectly aged pucks of Crottin de Chavignol, among other things.
