Happy February! We are celebrating love all month long and took some inspiration from one of the most romantic places in the world, and built this cheese plate inspired by France! We proudly present: The Ultimate French Cheese Plate.
Step 1: Start with Mimolette
Historically cave-aged with a signature cratered rind, Isigny Mimolette cheese is the perfect balance of salty to sweet, with a ﬁrm paste and just a hint of crunch in its nearly breakable texture. A versatile pairing partner that stands up to bold wines, beer, Normandy cider, and a variety of food. It also has a striking, orange color!
Step 2: Add Mary Dans Les Etoiles
Step 3: Add Revolution Roquefort AOP
Revelation Roquefort is a soft, unpressed cheese made with raw ewe’s milk. It has a bold and powerful scent and taste—characterized by its complex ﬂavors where the sheep’s milk is not overpowered by the power of the penicillium. Its white paste is dotted with large blue openings. Its texture is very smooth and creamy. Enjoy with whole grain crackers or by itself.
Step 4: Add Raspberries, Blackberries, and Whole Grain Crackers
These will be delicious pairings for your cheeses—some sweet, some sour, some crunchy and nutty ﬂavors!
Step 5: Add Rosemary, Figs, and Walnuts
Figs will add a hint of sweetness. Walnuts will add a hint of nuttiness. And rosemary creates a beautiful presentation, and a beautiful scent!
Enjoy your delicious French Cheese Plate! Bon appétit!
