We put art and design at the forefront of modernity, development, and innovation. We invite artists, designers, chefs, and researchers to work together on projects related to French cheese and the nutrition of today and tomorrow. The French Cheese Board provides a platform for the exchanging of ideas, for education, and for the celebration of French cheese.

The Kitchen

Modern and sleek our kitchen serves various purposes.  We lend it out to our caterers for parties and special occasions but also to chefs to prep and create recipes to share with our followers.  We also use to prepare samples to give out when need be or organize intimate tasting panels when preparing a pairing event or course. The kitchen is stocked for all sorts of events – whether for 30 or 300 – we’re sure to accommodate.

The Shop

The little corner shop was conceived in partnership with our French cheesemakers. Offering a small but curated selection we pride ourselves in showing all that France has to offer.  Our selection rotates monthly and you’re always sure to find one cheese at fifty per cent off retail.  We’ll announce our promotional item through social media at the beginning of each month to keep you coming back!  We also streamlined our retail process and only take card payments to get you in and out and closer to enjoying your French cheese. Bon appetit!

TOP 10 CHEESE

BRIE

Called the King of Cheeses, Brie is one of the best-known cheeses of France. Its soft, creamy texture, mellow flavor and rich aroma make it a crowd-pleaser on bread and crackers or melted in an omelet. Try Brie with light, fruity red wines or crisp whites.
Image

RACLETTE

With a salty, nutty flavor and silky, smooth texture, Raclette is delicious melted and served with bread, boiled potatoes, roasted root vegetables, or cured meats. Try it with a fruity, medium-bodied red or white wine.
Image

CAMEMBERT

The quintessential French cheese, Camembert is typically a bit stronger in flavor than Brie. It has a taste of wild mushrooms and a buttery texture that melts into the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich. Enjoy Camembert with a light, fruity red or sweet white wine.
Image

COMTÉ

With small, scattered holes called "eyes," Comté has an intriguing, complex flavor that can include hints of apricot, chocolate, butter, cream, hazelnuts and toast. Enjoy Comté in cubes, on a sandwich, melted in fondue, or grated and sprinkled on your favorite dishes. Any way you like it, serve Comté with a dry white or light red wine.
Image

EMMENTAL

With a lightly sharp, slightly salty taste, Emmental is great on a sandwich or a burger, in an omelet, or as a surprise twist to macaroni and cheese. Try Emmental with a sweet white or light to medium red wine.
Image

FOURME D’AMBERT

One of the mildest blue cheeses, Fourme d'Ambert is creamy with a delicate, fruity flavor, making it an ideal addition to salads or simply with bread or pear slices. Enjoy Fourme d'Ambert with fruity red or sweet dessert wines.
Image

MIMOLETTE

The sharp, nutty, fruity taste of Mimolette also includes sweet hints of butterscotch. Its brilliant orange color makes it the focus of any cheese platter. Try Mimolette with a rustic red wine or ale.
Image

CANTAL

Produced in three sizes of differing ages, Cantal's tangy, buttery taste varies with its age. Younger versions are sweet, while the more aged Cantals have a stronger, hazelnut-tinged flavor. Melted into casserole dishes, Cantal goes well with bold, fruity red wines or even Champagne.
Image

MORBIER

Morbier's bark is worse than its bite. Though strongly aromatic, it has a surprisingly mild flavor with a nutty aftertaste, making it an ideal dessert cheese. Try Morbier with a sweet white or fruity red wine.
Image

BEAUFORT

Richer and creamier than Emmental, Beaufort has a flowery, herbal aroma and a sharp flavor. Great on a grilled cheese sandwich or in fondue, Beaufort goes well with a light, crisp white wine.
