The Cheese plate of the day. On the plate, from 4:00 clockwise: Grimisuat (Goat), La Bouse (Cow), Valais Alpage Gomser (Cow), A Filetta (Sheep, see my separate entry on this stinker), Petit Gaugry (Cow, basically an Epoisses), and Jersey Blue.
The Jersey Blue is a relatively new award-winning blue from Willi Schmid. I’d had it stateside previously, purchased at Stinky’s, and it was interesting to see it in the case at Fromagerie La Grenette. Despite it’s American-sounding nomenclature it’s actually a German cheese, named after the breed of cow whose milk goes into it.
