WHAT BRINGS US HERE

The diversity of French cheeses is one of the most celebrated expressions of this gastronomy. French people strive to defend this heritage with passion.
But choosing, tasting, putting together a cheese board is not trivial. By properly selecting combinations of flavors and textures we can generate a much greater and pleasant gustatory experience.
With this special cheese tasting, we will offer you a broad understanding of this very special part of the French gastronomy.

did you know ?
Cheese, from Latin: Caesus. Fromage (cheese in French) comes from the Latin expression: caesus formaticus, molded cheese, created by the soldiers of the Roman army who called it only formaticus. The cheese, along with grains, vegetables and some vegetables were part of the food ration of the Roman legions that dominated and left important heritages on French soil. At that time cheese was already present in the markets of the big cities, and its manufacture already used a technique similar to the one used today.
