The Flavor Experience
One of the oldest and most respected French blues, Fourme D'Ambert is like a milder more buttery Stilton. The texture is softer and pliant with delightful undercurrents of earth and grass.
The Fourme part of Fourme D'Ambert refers to the form or mold the curds are placed in to become cylinders of cheese. The cheese is often compared to Stilton but it is smaller in size and much softer and milder than any Stilton. The textural difference are due to the fact that Fourme is pressed.
Fourme D'Ambert will be at home with fresh fruit—slices of apple or pear with just a touch of lavender honey. Pair with a chocolatey Doppelbock or something malty and sweet.
