I’ve been nibbling my way through a recently published book on the fascinating history of cheese in France. The Whole Fromage is an entertaining journey through the French countryside by Author, Kathe Lison, who brings the reader along on her pursuit of the world’s most delectable cheeses.

That all changed on a fateful trip to Paris where the world of delectable French cheeses revealed itself.
