Shipping Notes

Fourme d’Ambert is a cow’s milk cheese and thought to be one of the oldest cheeses produced in France, made in the Monts de Forez of Auvergne. The wheels of Fourme d’Ambert are aged in dark damp caves for at least two months before they are considered to be ready.

Fourme d’Ambert is one of the mildest members of the blue cheese family. The classic blue veins are light and almost blurred in comparison to sharper blue cheeses. It has a creamy texture with a mushroom flavor and hints of fruit.

This is a wonderful melting cheese and is widely used in savory soufflés which are classic French dishes. Crumbles of Fourme d’Ambert are also welcome additions to any cheese board or salad.

If you are looking for a wine pairing, opt for a wine of medium body, reds and whites are both complimentary depending on the way you use the cheese.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
