Carte de Frances des Fromage

Tomorrow we will be introducing a new Gastronomista Hostess, a lovely, charming, and stylish cheesemonger who will be teach us all we can possibly learn about the wonderful world of cheese - domestic, imported, stinky, silky, runny, hard, aged, ashen, washed rind, domestic, raw and runny.

To whet your palate, take a look at these incredible original French cheese maps, hand-colored steel engravings drawn under the supervision of famous cartographer Victor Levasseur in Paris in 1854. The maps are available for purchase from the Grace Galleries in Maine for only $85 a pop. In the cheese shop of our dreams, these maps will line the walls.
