A great ingredient for a fantastic holiday is without a doubt the French cheese and wine! French cheese is a huge subject and it just has to be delved into! This week we tried the Comte cheese. It is a hard cheese made in the Franche Comte region of France, close to the Swiss border. It comes in lots of different varietys and we tried the aged (12 months) and the "fruite" (fruity) version. Both were very nice, great with soem ice-cold white wine. It gave me the idea of offering cheese tasting evenings here at our Guest House - that would be really fun. Right, my favourite TV program is starting - Raymond Blanc's The very hungry frenchman! I will return with more "Cheese Facts".
