Fabulous fromage!

It’s not difficult to see the theme running through the majority of my blog posts…last time it was tarts, this time cheese.

I joined a new conversation class six weeks ago and the last session concluded with cheese tasting.  Our  teacher happens to have a delicatessen (!) and our lessons take place above the shop.IMG_0310

Le prof – Marion!

For a previous homework, we were all given a specific cheese to research and present. Mine was a goat’s cheese – Miam! Miam! A yummy goat's cheese!Our lovely teacher, Marion, also provided bread and other goodies and we brought along the wine. The cheeses we were given were: Rocamadour, Beaufort, Reblochon, Morbier, Roquefort, We were also given a form to complete and had to grade each cheese for taste, flavour etc. and give it a mark out of ten. Not only was this a very pleasurable experience but my vocabulary, to describe cheese, improved no end!

Do you have a favourite French cheese?
