That’s right – we’ve revamped to give you more, more, more! More content, more video recipes, more helpful cooking tips. More of what you want, whenever you want it!

Ready to dive in? Go right ahead – because we’ve got so many exciting things to share with you. Take our feature article for April, where we discuss easy ways to pair seasonal produce with savory (and sometimes sweet) French cheeses for a gourmet creation all your own. We’ll continue to feature this topic throughout the year, alternating it with another interesting subject, “Specialty cheeses for every meal of the day.” Next up is breakfast-brunch and cheese – how and what to pair with cheese in the morning. Don’t miss it!

In the meantime, we’ve got tons of ideas right here on how to make the most of spring’s fresh fruits and vegetables.

What’s for dinner tonight? Whatever your hungry heart desires! Just search our recipes by cheese type, cooking time or difficulty level – et voila! You can also add recipes to your “Favorites” list and create an entire menu to keep you satisfied all week long. And if you have a recipe that’s all your own, please, share it with the rest of the Ile de France community. We’ll be so glad you did!

Speaking of community, in our new “Community” section you can read what your fellow bloggers are saying about gourmet cheeses, post your recipes, and win valuable prizes by entering our recipe contests, the first of which, “Spring Follies,” is open now.

But wait – it gets even better! You can now share all that Ile de France has to offer – our recipes, videos, blog posts, and contests – with your Facebook and MySpace friends. Just click on the appropriate logo to spread the word!

So spring forth, friends, and experience the newly revitalized Your gourmet world awaits.
