PACE Food Swap Day Four: Wooh's charcuterie

On the fourth day of the food swap, Wooh felt like things had been getting competitive and that he had to bring things up a notch. His lunch was both simple and fancy: bread and cheese and soup. But not crappy Wonder bread and American cheese and canned soup, or anything like that. When we came down for lunch, Wooh had begun to lay out delicious, crusty baguettes, ricotta and piave cheese, paper-thin prosciutto, and a variety of accoutrements (such as mint leaves and honey).

He had also made a mushroom soup, which he heated and then dosed with parsley oil and cloudberry jam before serving.

An extremely satisfying lunch I could've lounged around eating for hours--the only thing that would've made it better would have been a nice beer (eh, maybe some cornichons). Wooh certainly raised the bar for the last person in our lunch cycle (Prado).
