Cheese, Grommit!

A recent cheese discovery at the local Whole Foods is a yummy heart-shaped neufchatel, named Coeur de Bray. It's a lot like camembert, but the shape makes it unusual and a fun choice for Valentine's Day.

From the site linked to above:

It is known that since the Middle Ages the Neufchatel cheese had many shapes, depending on fashion or simply on the moulds the producer owned ! The legend explains that the heart shape is due to the young Norman women that wanted to express discreetly their feelings to the English soldiers during the wars in the Middle Age ...
