French Stories by Julie – Part I

Hello there everyone,

George, the person obsessed with stamps, is currently on holiday. I would like to take this opportunity to talk a bit about something else.

Today, I would like to write about a specialty from my native country, France – cheese. I am really fond of it! France produces over 400 types of cheese, not only Camembert or Brie but also Rocamadour, Roquefort, Bethmale and Tomme des Pyrénées. Those last ones are specialties from my native region – Midi-Pyrénées or now called Occitanie. Here is one of my favourite cheeses:

Rocamadour is a small raw milk goat cheese. It is made in the areas surrounding the small town of Rocamadour – thus its name. This cheese is a delight – perfect to eat with a slice of baguette and a sip of red wine. It melts in the mouth, releasing aromas of goat milk, juniper and flowers and herbs from the region. Yummy!

If you are planning to go to France, then please just try one of our artisan cheeses.
