Only 10 Days To Go!

A little morsel of information drifted across my radar the other day that I am very excited about.

Next Saturday March 28, in just 10 days time, France is celebrating the 8ème Journée Nationale du Fromage - the 8th Annual National Day of Cheese !
It's a ginormous, nationwide Fête du Fromage!

You have plenty of time to get out there and buy some Brie de Meaux or Bleu d'Auvergne, purchase a piece of Picodon, shop for some Selles-sur-Cher or Saint Marcellin, or pick up a small square of Pont-l'Evêque. Why not try something new? I'm sure there's some smelly French cheese that you have always wanted to taste.

Come will be an adventure.

Let's celebrate la Journée Nationale du Fromage together! Write in and let me know what cheese you're going to try. Pin It

Darn, looks like I'll miss it! I won't be in the area until the 11th.

Yea! I'm glad you're joining in.

That's ok, you can celebrate in Seattle. You don't need to be in France to have French cheese!
Then when you get here, you can celebrate some more. :)

I'll have to keep that in mind. I'll see if there are any activities around Rodez...

I think there might be something here in Narbonne. Les Halles in Narbonne always celebrates the food holidays with gusto.
