A geographical and historical dive into French cheese — learn how your favorite French cheeses are made and the unique stories behind each one.

About This Course

It’s no secret that French cheese is delicious, but there is so much more to understanding and appreciating it than meets the eye (or mouth). This course will take you on a tasty journey back to the origins of different types of cheese, from the culture of French cheese to the 7 step process of cheesemaking. Marie Briere, a French journalist and cheese lover, takes us through several regions of France to demystify Brie, Le Petit Suisse, Munster, Comté, Cancoillotte, Blue Cheese, and Goat Cheese. She explores the history of cheese, how cheese is made, as well as what you should look for on a label at the grocery store. The seven types of cheeses focused on in this course all come from different regions of France, and Marie demonstrates how the diversity of the country’s many cheese options is a result of the unique geographic properties of the region where they originate. Marie’s aim is to empower you with the knowledge to explore this world in its entirety and if you take this course, you will have a much deeper, richer connection with cheese (you can't even imagine!)
