Treat your taste buds to the great flavours of French cheeses in Paris!

It’s the flower of French gastronomy and cheese in all its forms is the pride of our country. Indeed, taking into account the varieties found within each type, it is estimated that France can offer close to 1000 pressed, soft or blue, sheep's, goat’s or cow's milk cheeses... If you wish to discover some fine flavours, the Hotel Les Tournelles in Paris recommends that you try the Camembert, Roquefort and also the Tomme de Savoie in the heart of the capital.


French cheeses, a superb aspect of our gastronomic culture

In France, more cheese is consumed than other dairy products such as yoghurt, at a rate of about 25 kilos per year per person! And French cheeses are highly regarded throughout the world. This excellent reputation is well deserved, as the diversity of the country is reflected in the diversity of its cheeses, with something for every taste. It’s easy to fall into a routine in which you always buy the same types of cheese, but a visit to Paris will certainly expand your horizons cheese-wise! Why limit yourself when there are so many flavours available? To treat your taste buds, why not enjoy a Parisian escapade dedicated to cheeses, their tasting and the discovery of their manufacturing secrets?


Tomme de Savoie, Camembert and Roquefort, the great favourites

Among the cheeses most appreciated by demanding palates are the Tomme de Savoie, Camembert and Roquefort. All three have the distinction of being available to taste in many forms, including the most surprising. So you have it that, in different regions of France, you can eat your Roquefort with bread or dip it in coffee with milk, munch through a whole oven-baked Camembert, and melt the Tomme de Savoie to savour it in a raclette with charcuterie, potatoes and pickles. The capital has a lot to offer in terms of the diversity of flavours. In restaurants, wine shops and, of course, cheese shops, you will find all manner of delicious cheeses, to be enjoyed in that most perfectly satisfying of ways; with a good glass of wine!
