Paris Cheeses

Of course, if you go to Paris, you simply must go to a cheese shop and buy a selection of beautiful cheeses. Here are some of the ones I tried…

Rocamadour cheese

Pungent, sharp, and creates a strange sensation at the back of the throat.

Crottin Super Meme cheese

Crottin Super Meme: a fresh tasting, unctuous raw milk goat cheese

Dome de Vezelay cheese

Dome de Vezelay: creamy, a little bit goaty…leaves a tingle on the tongue…would be really nice in a dessert (like cheese cake).

Bleu d'Auvergne cheese

Bleu d’Auvergne: semi-firm,  not too pungent blue with some creaminess. Good!

Compte 12 mois cheese

Compte 12 mois: If you’ve never tried Compte I’d say it’s like a sophisticated swiss cheese.  I’d recommend going for the 18 month old, though,  as the favour is a bit more pronounced.
