And a contest: "Can you match that — or, even better, top it? We’d like to invite you to try.

If you’ve got a favorite cheese, and a fragrant way with words, we here at the Dining section cordially invite you to submit the wittiest description of that cheese that you can dream up."

    These homages in purple prose
    Offend my eyes, just like my nose
    When, having bought Brie that's overrated,
    Once unwrapped, proves ammoniated.
