Fourme D'Ambert

Is it butter or is it blue? It's both!

Quick Overview:

Fourme D'Ambert is buttery and mild with pockets of blue. Made from farm fresh cow's milk butter with a touch of mold, this French blue cheese is spreadable, with a squidgy texture, adding character to one of the classic cow's milk blues. 

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: France
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

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 Story

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.

Usage Tips

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.
