Fourme d'Ambert Terre des Volcans

Named for its shape, Fourme d’Ambert is said to be one of France's oldest cheeses, dating back to Roman times. Made from pasteurized cows' milk, its paste is cream-colored and flecked with blue mold. One of the richer, creamier blues available, Fourme d'Ambert offers balanced flavors of nuts, chocolate and damp earth.
