So I’m kind of a huge fan of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Not because Scripps pays my salary (which it does), nor because it’s my one chance a year to be an unabashed nationalist (which it is), but rather because the food vocabulary is always fascinating.
Two additional notes:
1) The Caerphilly at Tonjes Farm Dairy (Saturdays at the Union Square Greenmarket) is highly recommended.
