About this item

 

Dating back to the time of the Romans, Fourme d’Ambert is one of France’s oldest cheeses! A testament to its persistent popularity, there is a piece of Fourme d’Ambert in the medieval sculpture at the entrance to La Chaulme’s chapel in the Auvergne region of France. The mild flavor makes Fourme d’Ambert great to convert blue cheese skeptics. This cheese has a distinctly long, cylindrical shape with a bloomy rind and an earthy aroma. The paste is white with blue-green molding and a velvety texture with a distinctly earthy quality. The flavor is creamy and buttery, with a pleasant, delicate fruitiness. Fourme d’Ambert pairs well with Cotes du Rhone wine.
