I believe it was the comte’ cheese! I have all of a sudden been craving it! Is this a common cheese served for breakfast? I would appreciate if you know the answer ! Thank you so much! Reply Schmitt Romain on April 13, 2016 at 04:26 Hi Anne-Marie, The Comté is a cheese from Franche-Comté, the region where my mother come from. In this region it is common to eat at breakfast (some even put marmelade on it). In the rest of France, it you can have cheese at breakfast, but it is more for…special breakfast (like brunch). Reply Anonymous on January 19, 2015 at 18:01 There are hundreds of other cheeses you could have talked about such as tha Cantal (quite similar to Comté), the Époise (my favorite, extremely creamy and very strong in taste), Morbier, etc…anyway, your article is very accurate A French Guy who enjoyed what you wrote Reply Anonymous on May 7, 2014 at 22:59 Actually the Emmental is not French but Swiss…This cheese comes from the valley of Emmen in Switzerland. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmental_(cheese)Just to be accurate and keep some specialities in Switzerland (France has already enough ;-))Cheers Reply Anonymous on October 16, 2013 at 14:11 Nice list ^^ If you’re interested in health, I highly suggest you to watch Fathead or read Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes, a must-read! Fat is actually the healthiest food and doesn’t make you fat (bear in mind that the French eat 4 times more fat than Americans and have less problem of obesity and heart diseases), on the other hand, carbs and sugar may actually be a serious problem for our health. Hope you’ll take a look at my suggestions :) PS: Compté is spelt… Comté Reply Anonymous on February 15, 2013 at 23:24 I tried Camembert in France, it’s okay. Despite the great French cheeses listed, I think my favorite cheese is still sharp cheddar. Reply Anonymous on September 30, 2011 at 18:14 I’ve never noticed all these cheeses at the local supermarket, but after a thorough search – even walmart offers Boursin, compte, emmental, Camembert, and Brie! I’m so excited to try these out. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
