We recently had a cheese tasting day in my French class at the end of our food unit, where we learned some of the basic/common French foods. We tried six cheeses: Comte, Emmental, Bucheron, Roquefort, Brie and Camembert. There were also sides including bread, grapes and apple cider. My personal favorite was the Comte because it was delicious and had a delicate taste. I really enjoyed all of the cheeses except for the Roquefort because it was very smelly and the taste was pungent (we rated all the cheeses on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best).
Overall it was great tasting cheeses I wasn’t familiar with and had lots of fun doing it. I recommend it for all families out there – you will have a lot of fun too! In fact, I had a cheese tasting party with my family on Valentine’s Day because they loved the story I told them about the one in my class and how I had so much fun with it.
Viva la fromage!
