The French have a vast selection of gourmet cheeses and we have created a gourmet sampler of many of the types of cheese from France. Our Handful of French Cheese shows the diversity of gourmet cheeses this country has to offer:
Comte - (8 oz.) also known as Gruyere de Comte, is made from the milk of the Montbeliard cow. The cheese is hard, straw-colored, contains some medium-size holes with a floral aroma with nutty fudge flavors developing in the more mature cheese.
Port Salut - (8 oz.) - a traditional monastery cheese and is also known as Saint Paulin. Originally produced by Trappist Monks in the 19th century, this was the first French cheese produced from pasteurized milk. It is soft enough that it is spreadable.
Saint Andre - (7 oz.) is a triple cream cheese made with cow's milk, it has a bloomy white rind, that is as soft as velvet and the flavor is rich, creamy, all soft.
Roquefort - (8 oz.) has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant and sharp.
This assortment will be packed in our Glossy Burgundy or Blue Gift Box with an elegant ribbon to complete a beautiful present.
Please note that we will substitute any item that is temporarily out of stock with a similar item of equal or greater value.
