Increasingly I'm realising that Malc is a connoisseur-type. He is one of those people who likes to do things thoroughly, rather than quickly. He likes to learn about the processes he enjoys and become expert in them. For the most part this an enjoyable quality to live with- he has perfected Moroccan mint tea (very occasionally it can be frustrating, like when you're waiting for an after dinner coffee). 

Its interesting that the word connoisseur is grounded in the arts,

Perhaps that's where Malc picked it up from. But also takes on the art of eating and drinking,

Will you allow me to extend the term to shaving? Perhaps Malcolm will explain a bit more.
