Adventures in Cheese

Posted on Updated on

The Peculiar Pleasures of Smelly Cheeses
(attributed to Michael Pollan)

Some speak of French Wine
how in France, a glass of wine is less cheaper than a soft drink
(which I have never experienced)

For me it is more about the Cheese
Not necessarily from the visible street-front Fromageries, but the grocery stores,
even the 8 à Huit or Marché Franprix mini-markets (a French gourmet version of your local 7-Eleven convenience store)
I occasionally soak the wine (or Champaign) label off the bottle, but all my cheese wrappers are stuffed into a zip-lock to scrutinize upon my return to the USA

Here is my amazing (perhaps embarrassing) Cheese “log”:

Chaussée aux Moines (this is my Every-Day Go-To Paris cheese)
Selles -sur-Cher

Tomme de Savoie
Munster Géromé
Ossau-Iraty sharp Basque Sheep’s milk cheese
Saint Albray
Sheep Cheese
Vacherin (Mont d’O) potent mountain cheese
