French Cheese Plate *
We scoured France looking for the finest cheeses available. About 40 miles east of Paris, we discovered a Coulommiers—a Brie-type cheese that has the color of freshly churned butter and a soft mushroom-y flavor with hints of sweet almond in the winter and chives in the spring. In the Basque region, we found a semi-dry Petit Ardi Gasna Lait Cru—a sheep's milk cheese with a slightly sweet, nutty flavor, somewhat like Manchego. And in Aquitane, we came across a Picadine Pico Affine—a Camembert-style goat's-milk cheese that is insanely creamy and perfectly aged.
