This French classic is semi soft and creamy. Well balanced.
This is an important piece of French cheese history, with strong evidence suggesting it is at least 1200 years old, it is one of France’s oldest cheeses. Fourme d’Ambert is from the Auvergne region and in contrast to the harsh, rugged terrain this cheese is known as “the connoseurs blue” for it’s unique mildness and balanced flavour. This cheese remains to this day as the benchmark for a mild blue cheese, with earthy undertones coupling the sweeter creamy flavour that lingers on the palate.
It is quite possible that one of your ancestors 50 generations ago enjoyed Fourme d’Ambert.
