France has such amazing cheese!

Oh, wish I had some here!

How brilliant the French are, throwing parties to celebrate cheese! Cholesterol be damned (I told that to my doctor, and I meant it). Anyway, I think the wine neutralizes the cholesterol, doesn't it?

We must remember to take the cheese out of the refrigerator an hour or more before using.

And with such exquisite cheese, we must have the right drink. Some wine such as Cotes du Ventoux blanc goes very well, but I must mention my favorite alternative to wine.

An ice cold drink made with Noilly Prat dry vermouth and Citadelle gin, both French, make for me the best martini ever. Keep the gin in the freezer and mix it 2:1 with the vermouth, put that back in the freezer along with the martini glass. When all is ice cold, pour the mix into the frozen glass, add an olive or lemon twist, enjoy with the cheese.

No, no need to say more. I am drooling as I throw a slice of that plastic-wrapped, bright yellow substance they call "cheese" here on my son's hamburger. ;-) Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle

Thanks for another great cheese post! I absolutely love cheese and I tend to eat a ton of it in summer because I visit more wineries this time of year. There are so many places that offer a great charcuterie platter or a simple cheese plate.

Do they really sell cheese by mail order? That's awesome! Also, this sounds wonderful.

It was divine! I'm thinking of ordering some more.
Hope you're having a nice week as well.

It certainly does!

It gives you a reason to come to France. :)

In my non-medical, wine and cheese loving opinion, the wine definitely neutralizes the cholesterol.

A martini with cheese? Hmmm...interesting. I'm not sure I'm convinced though.

Yes, it was wonderful! At room temperature, of course. :)

Yellow cheese product? Oh, that is sad! Quick, go get some real cheese!


Glad you're getting the chance to enjoy lots of cheese and wine this summer. Santé!

They do! And they make really delicious Pineau des Charentes as well.
