A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life in New York City to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.



Cheese? French Fromagery...? It's in an upheaval, thanks partly to European laws and greedy Camembert companies who made a great mistake in changing from "au lait cru" to "lait chauffée" (they didn't want to put "pasteurisée or "stérilisée" because they knew that real Camembert lovers only buy "au lait cru"). Well they got their "come-uppance" - Camembert sales have plummetted! It's now VERY difficult to find, Nationally, Camembert au lait cru, thanks to these idiots! Thanks also to the European Commission who banned the exportation of anything containing raw milk (lait cru). Imbeciles - no taste (I'm talking about the Eurocrats)!
The only cheeses which are worth presenting on a table are those made from raw milk, and they are becoming fewer and fewer.
I haven't noticed that we've become healthier and healthier thanks to such ridiculous laws!

mrlemarquis, you can still find Lanquetot lait cru cheese fairly easily, and I think Intermarche have their own brand too.

But you're right, at some point not that long ago, you couldn't find it at all, or barely. Naturally, I immediately stopped buying Camembert. No one's gonna force me to eat tasteless sterilised muck.
