This French treasure from the Auvergne region of France is made from raw cow's milk. Fourme d'Ambert is an ancient cheese: one of the oldest recorded cheeses in French history. 'Fourme' is an old word for the cheese's shape (or form), and Ambert is the town in Auvergne mountains where the cheese is created. This creamy blue is soft with a rough gray-brown natural rind. It carries the flavor and the aroma of freshly roasted nuts and tangy pop of fruit.

The Fourme d'Ambert is high in moisture, and therefore spreadable and soft. Compared to other well-known blues, it's milder and less salty than Roquefort, and is creamier than a Blue Stilton.

Fourme d'Ambert has long been a favorite of cheese connoisseurs everywhere. It's equally suited for an afternoon snack or featured as a showpiece on a fancy cheese board. One taste and we hope you'll agree.

We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in pieces of 8 ounces and 1 pound, you can also purchase an entire form of approximately 5 pounds.
