A School Soiree in Texas!

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

We love hearing from winners and seeing how they enjoy the free cheese we send!

One delightful example comes from Wilma – who shared Ile de France Cheese with French students at Tyler Junior College in Texas, where she works.

“The students were so excited and I was absolutely delighted to win. Some were hesitant to eat “smelly” cheese but I told them it was an experience. 🙂 I shared a Powerpoint presentation with the French Instructor and she showed it at the soiree. We played French music in the background as we had casual conversations and ate chocolates,” Wilma said.

Monique’s First Risotto

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Our returning guest blogger, Monique from Food Snob, came back and created her very first risotto with Ile de France Camembert Cheese!


First, she put the ingredients into her skillet:

2 tablespoons Butter
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (sauteed)
1 cup Arborio rice
1/2 cup DRY white wine
5 cups Chicken stock
1/3 cup Ile De France Camembert cheese, cubed
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
“I started by heating my skillet and melting the butter. I toasted the Arborio rice for a few minutes. Then I added the already sauteed mushrooms. And what came out was some delicious Risotto!”
