  • In a weird twist of ironic timing, it was recently announced that Canada is looking to make it easier to import european cheeses into Canada.  Cheesemakers are nervous about what this means for canadian products. (via Montreal Gazette)
  • And finally, the world’s most expensive bottle of wine. It is sold in Dubai, and the price includes an oak case, and a trip to the winery, all yours for only $195,000. Will that be cash or charge? (Via Eater)
