Y'know, one of the things I love best about your blog is that I am always curious what pictures might pop up and that I get excited to look. You really are a talented photographer.

Of course, the cheese reviews are lovely as well.

tried to respond to your answer from yesterday but dont know if it went through so try again - thanks for your reply - love your site!!

we have seen the vendors at markets but have heard and have experienced quite a high price we felt for cheeses they had vs. store prices I thought - something to watch out for???

we dont live in France but have done 2+ weeks in various areas the last 4 years - really like the Languedoc area last year.

have you ever had cheese from Fromager des Clarines - found it at Whole Food stores in the US - we really like it!

merci! That is very sweet of you to say.
The cheese and the photography are both very rewarding.

Yes, cheese can be expensive, especially from small producers. Think of it as paying for a Sonoma wine by a small vineyard vs. mass produced Gallo. One has to pay more for the quality.
I've heard that Whole Foods is good or if there is a cheese shop in your area it is good to develop a relationship.
There are also a few shops in the States who will ship. I wrote a post about it back in April.

So you know the Languedoc! It is a beautiful area. We love it.
I've never heard of this Fromager des Clarines, but I'll do a search and see if I can find their cheese. Thank you for the recommendation.
