This is a set of six French cheese plates illustrated with famous French cheese names. A fabulous, fun cheese plate set with six different designs. Each Plate shows the animal, from whose milk the cheese is made, and also details of the region where it is produced. An excellent gift for cheese and wine connoisseurs. A real 'talking point' at the dinner table.
The plates are:
"Roquefort, j'aime mieux mes moutons". This world famous blue cheese, made from sheep's milk, is produced in the Aveyron region of Southern France.
"Camembert, je vais revoir ma Normandie". Camembert is a moist, soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese. It was first made in the late 18th century at Camembert, Normandy, in northern France.
"Carre de l'Est, en passant par le Lorraine". A cow's milk cheese originating from Lorraine. Its place of origin and square shape give it its name (literally "square of the East").
"Banon, les marchés de Provence" Banon is a circular shaped, goat's milk cheese, made in the region around the town of Banon in Provence, south-east France.
"Valençay, au pays du Berry", A cheese made in the province of Berry in central France. Its name is derived from the town of Valençay in the Indre department. Distinctive in its truncated pyramidal shape, Valençay is an unpasteurised goats-milk cheese.
"Broccio, ô Corse, île d'amour". Broccio is a Corsican cheese produced from a combination of milk and whey, giving it some of the characteristics of whey cheese; it is produced from ewe's milk.
