5 cheeses from the home of cheese, France. With this selection you will be getting Epoisses, Brie de Meaux, Ossau Iraty, Comte, and Fourme d’Ambert!
Let’s talk about the cheeses:
Epoisses is France’s smelliest cheese, but fear not, it’s delicious! Smelly at first but comes with a sweet flavour profile. You’ll find a palette that’s a little fruity – gooey and soft – with a sweetness that contrasts to the nose.
Up next, Brie de Meaux! This is a soft, delicate, creamy brie with a stunningly bloomy rind and gorgeous buttery flavours that melt in the mouth. What can we tell you, you cannot beat a good, classic Brie!
From there, we have Ossau Iraty. This is a cheese with a lot of history, it still follows a traditional recipe that can be traced back 3000 years, this means that this cheese predates the English Alphabet! You’ll be getting a creamy, earthy and beautifully smooth cheese.
We then move onto Comte. Aged for 18 months, it is dense, open and smooth – basically everything you want in an Alpine cheese, coming with beautiful fruity, nutty, salty, savoury, smokey and sweet flavours.
And last but by no means least, we have Fourme d’Ambert. This creamy, dense and subtle cheese is full of delightful savoury, sharp, smooth and tangy flavours. It is known as “the connoisseurs blue” for it’s unique mildness and balanced flavour.
