You do Get Good Stuff in the Provinces (Part II)
A was charmed by the food and wine on offer that he decided to bring C back some highlights to sample herself: she was very kindly gifted with a bottle of English counties regional wine and some herb-infused Wiltshire brie. (There was originally talk of some home-baked cookies for C too, but A - with his well-concealed but voracious sweet tooth - failed to mention these again, leading C to the assumption that they were scoffed on the journey back...)
After an uninspired but pleasant meal at a chain the other night, then, we came home for a cheese and wine-themed dessert courtesy of the West Country. C took the chance to mess around with macro lenses and mood lighting and took a few pics - the brie lent itself particularly well to this style of photography, although it didn't look this perfectly complete for too long once she'd had a first try!

With all the creaminess, soft texture and hard rind that a brie should have, the added flavours of the herbs infused throughout was incredibly moreish.
The wine was also very palatable; fairly dry and with a bit of a tang, it had an almost musty aftertaste - which was a lot more appealing than it sounds. Albeit not the best bottle of wine that A and C had ever tasted, it was imminently drinkable and very enjoyable - especially accompanied with the herb-infused brie. C, who much to A's despair always factors the design of wine bottles' labels into her overall judgement, was also particularly pleased with this offering, featuring a sketch of the market cross at Malmesbury:
