anyone that reads my blog would now gather i could eat good cheese all day...everyday...until i am sadly uncomfortable! fromager des clarines is a cheese i have known for about 12 years now. my love for this cheese began when i worked in the fromagerie @ simon johnson. it was popular then with customers & chefs & understandbly so...various good delis around brisbane sell this cheese, i got this one from vanilla pod. the cheese needs to be handled/stored with care as it can perish quickly...when it is ripe & ready it is incredible!
cheese notes - fromager des clarines is made from mountain milk, yielding a smooth, very creamy cheese that is a must to serve as close to room temperature as possible, to release it's fresh white truffle butter flavours. packed in a woodchip box you can serve straight from the box or place on a platter...delicious w grissini or crusty baguette.
enjoy with sparkling wine or a gutsy red...you can also bake this cheese in its box - plenty of recipes avail via google.
