More than a thousand French cheeses…
The French enjoy a lot of cheese. And more importantly, they are deeply connected to, and proud of, their cheese. As well they should be! They have a rich and storied cheese history, a deep-rooted culture of cheese, and more than a thousand cheeses in their lexicon.
France takes its cheese so seriously, they have a whole system of Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC). This means “controlled designation of origin,” and serves to protect the authenticity of cheese. For example, for a cheese to be awarded the AOC-protected name “Cantal,” it must come from the Cantal mountains in Auvergne from the winter milk of Salers cows, made according to specific methodology, and aged a minimum of one month.
The French cheese lover in Sydney has many glorious options at Bastille Festival 2018 (12-15 July), East Circular Quay Village.
