A Glass of Chianti

If one wants to win my heart

one might try saying something like this in the course of a conversation:
I like cheese as an element of a larger food-item (i.e., pizza, cheeseburgers) but not cheese qua cheese (so no fried cheese sticks, no string cheese)*

It's just a little insight that some people might find helpful.

*Paraphrased (of course), however, qua really was italicized.
