I have a confession to make...I'm tired of writing about cheese.
There, I said it.
You may have noticed that the cheese posts around here have been few and far between in the last several months. When Katia came to Normandy to interview me for The France Project, I told her confidently that my Fête du Fromage cheese tasting adventures would soon be back in full swing.
Well, it never happened, and I've been feeling kind of guilty about that.
My passion for French cheese hasn't waned, not one little bit.
Just walking into a gorgeously smelly Fromagerie and seeing the stacks and stacks of cheese in all different shapes, sizes and textures gives me a thrill. I'm happy that I've taken the time to educate myself about such a delicious subject and I love that I now know over 225 French cheeses intimately. And there are still so many left to try!
I still buy cheese. And eat cheese. Lots of cheese! I am still "the cheese lady." (I think it's hilarious when my friends call me that!)
For the moment though, I'm simply uninspired when it comes to writing about cheese.
So for now, here are 214 cheeses I've already tasted for la Fête du Fromage, and some photos of the fromages français that are patiently biding their time until my inspiration comes back. Which it will.
You'll be the first to know.
