As most readers of The House Mouse know, this mouse loves her funky fromage. If it is strong, runny, pungent, and daring, I am all in. Few cheeses scare me, however, after reading the article below, I think I may just have to pass on Fromage Forte.
Fromage Fort is French for “strong cheese” and is created by tossing bits of leftover cheese, herbs and sometimes even wine and letting it sit for a week or longer. The resulting flavor will vary depending on what remnants are melded and how long it is left to cure. Unfortunately for Francis Lam, his concoction of curds was not a match made in heaven.
