CHEESE OF THE DAY: BEAUFORT
Beaufort is a French cheese made in Beaufort (hence the name) - up in the French alps. They use only milk from local alpine grazing cows that help to give Beaufort its creamy flavour and slightly nutty/fruity finish. It falls somewhere between a Comte and an Emmental in both flavour and texture. I found it slightly unusaual in the fact upon imediate tasting I wasnt bowled over by this cheese, but I kept going back for another taste. I think if you love Comte - then this cheese will be a new favourite for you!!!
