April 1, 2009
At the beginning of every month in 2009, I will be offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
Our desktop calendar for April is a picture of a cheese plate served at Le Pré Catelan, a restaurant whose cheese is aged by cheese refiner Alléosse. (Incidentally, both are written up in my Paris book.) Clockwise from the top, the plate features portions of Livarot, Comté, Fourme d'Ambert, Selles-sur-Cher, and Brillat-Savarin.
Instructions to get your calendar are below!
Here's how it works:
1- This link will open a new window (or tab) displaying the right wallpaper image for your screen.
2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background", "Use as Desktop Picture," or something to that effect -- the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.
3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose "Fit to screen" as the display mode of your background image.
4- Enjoy, and see you in May for the next calendar!
