Many of you came to the cheese tasting night organized by the French department and French club last Wednesday!
Bleu d’Auvergne, Chevrot, Compté… and lots of others! Oh! And very important: the baguette!
Take a look, here are the pictures of students experiencing this very French tradition.
A typical French meal is composed of :
1: a main course
2: cheese and bread
3: a dessert
Most French people eat cheese every day, sometimes as a main course for dinner!
Each region of France produces a particular type of cheese. There are from 350 to 400 distinct types of French cheese. There can be many varieties within each type, leading some to claim close to 1,000 different types of French cheese!!!
In Alsace, the region where I come from, we produce Munster which is probably my favorite! What is your favorite cheese?
