I just had to share this with you, dear readers, because it is the most beautiful cheese stall I have ever seen.
Sunday, at the Chartrons market in Bordeaux.
Goat's milk, cow's milk... Each has its own little shape. Molded, stamped, carved, rolled, coated in ashes, spices or herbs, flavored with cognac. There are the really fresh ones which are lusciously soft and creamy and the dry, pungent, aged ones, and all the stages in between.
The bun shaped ones sitting on leaves are formed by pressing in muslin draining sacks. They are the freshest.
And they taste as good as they look:)
