IDF is on TV! Our famous Ile de France Brie has been making the rounds on television, this time alongside our other cheeses: Saint Andre, St. Agur and Chaumes! Charles Duque of CheesesofFrance.com joined Margaret Larson from New Day Morning Show on Seattle’s King 5 to give the audience a quick French cheese 101.
Did you ever want to learn the “method to the cheese madness” in building a cheese plate? Charles shares this simple rule of thumb:
Place the mildest cheese at noon position on the plate, placing the stronger cheeses going clockwise and finishing with the strongest cheese.
In this case, the strongest cheese was the St. Agur blue cheese, rounding out the plate. Charles also wants to point out that it’s best to try to include different colors, different textures, and different rinds (outer surface of the cheese).
