What you can expect

Travel through France with one cheesy bite at a time! Discover why French love cheese and try 7 typical and mouth-watering types of cheese from different regions in the country.

Join me on a cheese-lovers private experience that will be accompanied by two tasty and easy pairing wines with some fresh crispy baguette. Ready to satisfy your cheesy cravings?

Discover why cheese is a way of life for us! I'll tell you all about the history of the different families of French cheeses and about the way French families serve and eat cheese on an everyday basis. We just can't get enough!

During your private tasting, you'll feel like an expert. The French regions and their characteristics will become familiar to you. For example, the Comté is prepared in the mountains during the summer, then sent to the valley for a period of maturation which can last up to 42 months! You'll even get some interesting insights like the lovely story of the discovery of how to prepare Roquefort.

For a charming atmosphere, your tasting will take place in a cute little cheese shop near "Le Parc des Buttes Chaumont." It is an elegant boutique with an appetizing smell directly transporting you to the realm of cheese!

Is there any type of cheese you would like to try? Let me know your cheesiest dreams and I'll make them come true on a personalized experience.

When I was 20 I had this wonderful experience of "goats keeping" in Ardèche, a dry and charming region. There goats are the kings and queens; happy with the very tasty food they find in the bushes. I stayed there 1 year and a half: taking care of the goats, milking them by hand, making cheese. In fact, I learned to prepare the delicious "picodons", a little round cheese that is very tasty that you can eat in each state of its duration. You can find it either very fresh, creamy or completely dry. The cheese I made was so tasty that I was very successful in selling them on the village's markets. Then I did a few different jobs, and about 6 years ago I decided to quit my job of manager in a pharmaceutical company and do what really appealed to me: become a cheese monger. I started a cheese training for a year and was delighted. I am now working in the lovely "Fromagerie des Buttes Chaumont" and really happy of the change and to be able to share this with you!"
