Napoleon (250g)

Avg. 250g, at £36.20/kg
From La Fromagerie

£9.05

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

The name is derived from the mountain facing the farm and is called Le Nez de Napoleon as the top of the mountain has an uncanny resemblance to Napoleon's profile. Only a small amount of cheese is made and matured by Dominique Bouchait who gives them a certain style that is quite unique. In the style of an Ossau but with a softer texture and a lovely nutty tang. Perfect with wines of the region, but also to be enjoyed with a fine Burgundy too as the flavours would definitely enhance a full bodied dry red wine.

Gabietout (250g)

Avg. 250g, at £30.40/kg
From La Fromagerie

£7.60

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Supple textured mixed cow’s and sheep’s milk cheese with a fruity, nutty bite and a smooth chewy texture.  The rind has been lightly brine washed and rubbed to give a pale ochre glow, and the aroma is gentle and earthy.  Best eaten when quite young, although matured cheeses have a more strident taste. From the French Pyrenees.

Saint Marcellin (90g each)

£4.80 each
From La Fromagerie

£4.80

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Isere/Dauphine, Unpasteurised Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet.

A classic small medallion shaped cheese, with scattered white and blue bloomy moulds. Pate slightly firmer and less lactic when young becoming more oozing and melting with ripening. A lovely gentle rounded tasting cheese, especially when served with a southern Rhone wine.

Baked St. Marcellin
Serves 1-2

Brush the top of the cheese lightly with a white wine, and sit the ceramic dish the cheese is sold in on a baking sheet. Place on the middle shelf of a pre-heated oven 180 C / 200F for about 10 mins. Serve with toasted Poilane and a green salad using a variety of leaves like rocket and chicory, dressed in a walnut or hazelnut oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and toasted hazelnuts roughly crushed.

Robiola Delle Langhe

Avg. 300g, at £32.65/kg
From La Fromagerie

£9.80

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Made in the Cuneo province, these are deliciously soft and melting cheeses with tender natural bloomy rinds, made with cow, goat and sheep's milk mixed together. The creamy soft paté tastes sweet and nutty almost like fresh cobnuts and is best eaten fresh or with a little maturing will taste more earthy and rich.

Franche-Comte/Haut Doubs, Unpasteurised Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet.

Semi-hard smooth textured cheese with pale gold/beige washed brushed crust. The pale ivory pate has a layer of blue/black edible ash and vegetable extract across its centre to separate the morning and evening milks used in the layers. Mild and refreshing when young, becoming richer and more pronounced with age.

Langres (200g each)

£5.85 each
From La Fromagerie

£5.85

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Champagne, Unpasteurised Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet.

Drum shaped with depressed crater-like top. Soft brightly coloured orange natural crust (must not be chilled as this will harden the outer coating and ruin the flavour). Inside is a rich, moist, spicy cheese which should be almost melting with a flaky centre. Another cheese to match with a dry Champagne or a velvety smooth Gigondas.

Gorgonzola Dolce (250g)

Avg. 250g, at £26.50/kg
From La Fromagerie

£6.63

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Really creamy and silky, one layer curd using milk from only a single milking per batch.  Quite unlike the usual soapy version.  A very melting pate and the blue veins gently bleeding into the curd, inducing a sweet nutty taste.  Largely made around Novara in Piedmonte, but also small specialist producers close to Torino as well as parts of Lombardia where we, in fact, source our cheeses in the Valle Padana.

Fourme d'Ambert, 250g

Avg. 250g, at £23.80/kg
From La Fromagerie

£5.95

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Auvergne, Unpasteurised Cow’s Milk, Traditional Rennet.

Known as the “connoisseur’s blue cheese”.  Capsule shaped cheese patched grey/white moulds on a natural thin crust.  The interior is creamy coloured with a smooth even marbling which doesn’t dominate the flavour.  The texture is rich and mellow with a nutty subtle flavour making it a perfect partner for fine wines as the taste is not overly aggressive.
