PROFILE

It is flavored with walnut and is excellent with pears and other winter fruits, or even accompanied by blue cheeses. Gourmandise is most commonly served as dessert cheese; a true delicacy especially when served with dessert wines like Sherry or Port or well chilled champagne.

Dear Ile de France,

What has happened that I can't get your Gourmandise walnut cheese in Chicago. I have the people at the cheese dept at Whole Foods telling me that it is not allowed in the US anymore??? What is that about. If you could please tell me how to get it in Chicago, I would go there to purchase some. It is one of our favorites.

Thanki you.
