La Fête du Fromage...continued

We picked up some cheese at les Halles in Béziers yesterday where a very kind woman at la fromagerie helped us choose a few from the numerous varieties available.
We ended up with the following:

Bleu de Basque
Brie de Meaux

There's no time to write about these cheeses at the moment as we're off again in the morning to drive to the villa near Cannes. We'll be back in a few days.
Let me just say that they were fantastic! Especially the Beaufort. Oh my god, what heavenly cheese! Pin It

Is the beaufort from Beaufort?

Jennifer said...

no, Beaufort is a hard, somewhat sharp cheese made from cow's milk and is similar to gruyère. It is produced in the area around Beaufort located high in the French Alps in the Savoie region of France.

beaufort is one of my all time favs! there is a spring and winter one. different colors because of the flowers that the cows eat. tarentaise cows only make it.yummmm

Italians usualy hate to hear that you really can't beat France for cheese. (but it's true, shhh)

I've never met a Beaufort I didn't like. It's good stuff.
