Cheese newbie - where to begin?

annamikemc | Dec 31, 2007 05:20 AM

Hello! As someone who does not have much experience (okay, ANY experience) with French cheese, can anyone point me in the right direction for our fromagerie visits on our upcoming Paris trip? I know that there are hundreds of cheeses and I'm a bit overwhelmed! I want to experience as many food delights as possible and don't want my limited knowledge to get in the way. Can I find some of the cheeses here in America before I go? I've really only tried Muenster (but probably not French), goat cheese (a few softer kinds - I think it was French chevre, love it), bleu cheese (probably not french) and that's about it. I've tried brie once and didn't really like it, but I'm willing to try some while in Paris since it seems so many people love it and I'm not generally a picky eater.
