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…
Pungent, sharp, and creates a strange sensation at the back of the throat.
Crottin Super Meme: a fresh tasting, unctuous raw milk goat 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: semi-firm, not too pungent blue with some creaminess. Good!
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.
