    I love cheese,but whenever I go to buy some in France I always seem to go
    for the same ones.Im always faced with a huge choice on the cheese counter
    and would like to hear from others as to what is a good cheese to try for a change

    Anything blue and very smelly should be OK. Just go for one you have not tried before.

    image.jpeg We watched the locals buying cheese from the big supermarkets and saw them buy this one, so we bought it and loved it.

    That's one of our favourites too. We tend to buy one we recognise, something blue and something we've never had before

    :sicker::sicker::sicker::sicker::sicker::sicker::sicker:
    Nothing wrong with a nice chunk of white as white LANCASHIRE! (y)(y) Proper cheese, not like that runny French muck. And what better to go with it then a nice new Warburtons Loaf. You know, this country came tops in the cheesemakers guide to better fromage for the last five years on the trot.(y)
    And what better place to enjoy your cheese then Skegness?? :)

    Don't go for "under plastic" ones . Go to a big supermarket and ask for "un petit échantillon de goûts, S'il vous plait!" (write it down if necessary). Buy a nice crunchy baguette, and have an only cheese meal... with a local red wine (as I always say to my English visitors: the top of the bottle must have the word "récoltant" on it, not numbers.)...Enjoy!
