Cheesy Romance

In times of romance, our thoughts turn to—cheese? Not ordinarily. But these cheeses from Central Market come ripe with erotic opportunities. Wensleydale with cranberries ($19.99/pound) wears a red, heart-shaped shell of wax. The berries pierce the snow-white cheese, imparting a fruity jolt, like the spark you feel when you spot a fox across a crowded room. Coach Farm aged goat cheese hearts ($21.99/pound), made in upstate New York by the handbag wiz, boast a texture as unflaggingly creamy as a passionate kiss. Chocolate Royale ($14.99/pound) stirs that romance staple—chocolate—into young white Stilton. The dance between tart and sweet flickers over your tongue like, um, uh, an intriguingly savory cheesecake. (What were you thinking?) 5750 E. Lovers Ln. 214-234-7000; 320 Coit Rd., Plano. 469-241-8300; 4651 W. Freeway, Fort Worth. 817-989-4700 —Teresa Gubbins
