Known since the Middle Ages, the Fourme d’Ambert is one of the lightest blue veins cheese you can find in France. According to the legend, it is said the druids used this cheese to celebrate their cult on the top of the ‘Massif du Forez’, during the Galo-roman period. Later, it was used as a currency of exchange to rent the ‘Jasseries’, the little shack used as stable and also for living and making the cheese during summertime. Produced in Auvergne with raw cow’s milk of one herd, our farmhouse Fourme d’Ambert is creamy with well-marked blue veins. It has delicate butter flavours and herbaceous notes. Perfect when combined with jammed or fresh yellow fruits.

1 review for Fourme d’Ambert Fermière
Paul Christensen (verified owner) –
Fourme d’Ambert seems to me to be a fairly consistent cheese from various suppliers. This is a perfectly good, but not particularly distinctive, example. It goes down well on the Cherries, Almonds and Linseeds Cheese Crackers.
