Soft, hard, fresh, aged, delicate, stinky....there are so many different kinds of cheeses from France. This week I got to taste a delicious selection of French cheeses at an event hosted by the French Dairy Board called "Fall in Love with Formage" and that is what I did. Hence, French cheeses are the Please The Palate pick of the week!
With more than 1200 different French cheeses, many names which are hard to pronounce, are accessible, affordable and delicious. The cheeses presented at the event came from the The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills which is one of my favorite stores to go to. Here are a few favorites:
Brie Le Chatelain - A soft, bloomy-rind cow's milk cheese from the pastures of the Vosges Mountain region of France. This creamy, smooth brie was even better on top of a thick piece of fresh bread and a touch of olive oil on top.
