Fourme d'Ambert dates back to the Roman period, making it one of the oldest of the French cheeses. It's an absolutely beautiful blue cheese with a lovely smooth, soft texture and refined blue flavour. It's no surprise that Fourme d'Ambert is often referred to as the 'connoisseurs blue cheese'.
While it has a full blue flavour, it's more subtle than many blues and the flavour builds slowly rather than hitting you straight away. This traditional handmade cheese has a creamy, crumbly texture with a beautifully rich and balanced blue flavour.
