Product Description

A cheese that you’ll delight in matching with meats, fish and poultry, Fourme D’Ambert was created in the Loire region of Ambert. Like most blue cheeses it’s made using penicillium roquerforti – the same mold used in Roquefort – and cave aged. It grows richer as it ages, with 5-8 weeks being it’s optimum peak. Don’t be distracted by the hard crust, inside lies a rich and creamy cheese!

Storage: refrigerated
In France, it was the monasteries that began the delicious tradition that is French cheese. The monks took great care and pride in their cheese, being meticulous in their creation.

A bit of experimentation ensued and so we have numerous varieties today. Through the years, the French people have refined the work of producing milk, extracting the curd and turning it into intense regional flavor meaning that it really is possible to be a French cheese expert.

French cheese has come to command an important reputation on the world stage, for example, brie may be produced anywhere, but a brie with the “Produce of France” stamp denotes a certain standard, thereby demanding a higher price.
