I love to see cheese displayed on shelves like that -- it's a very nice "présentation."

It should! :)

It was a great little shop. Nice owner and great selection. Wish it weren't so far away.

Betty
I agree. Much more attractive when it's not all locked away behind glass.

what a selection! how do you choose?

Thank you for a delectable shot....a big question ....have you asked how they keep track of their inventory ....cheese is such a delicate commodity..age/time/temperature dependent for flavor ...it must be a complex method keeping on top of it without incurring great loss. Have you done a feature on that aspect of a fromagerie?

I'm trying to taste every cheese in France so I go through and find the ones I haven't tasted yet. :)

This Fromagerie keeps everything out on the shelves instead of in a cold case, so the shop is kept at a very cool temperature to reduce spoilage. I imagine the inventory is managed by tracking what was ordered vs. what was sold.
I've never written about that aspect of a Fromagerie, but that is a great idea. Thanks!
