More cheese Gromit?

To celebrate Peters' 50th Birthday in Provence it couldn't have been better served than being invited to our good friends' Micheline and Jacques' cheese and Champagne soiree. It was also their daughters' birthday and we were made welcome by their friends and as many choices of cheese as years old!

The night began with Champagne, followed by a selection of 26 cheeses numbered in tasting order. Varieties such as goats cheese with fruit, Brie de meaux, Compte Vielle, tournesol, Epoisses, Roquefort, Salers and the list continues......all accompanied with a selection of choice charcuterie.

With lots of laughter and tales from Jack, we enjoyed the 'smorgasbord' of cheeses with some very good local wines from Vacqueyras, Cairanne and Vinsobres. Including a vary special Vacqueyras produced by Jack's brother and blended by Jack himself in the year that his daughter was born, 1991!

And it was amazing........
The evening was rounded off with a tempting selection of french pastries....of course!
