The land of a thousand and one wines and cheeses
Several regions successfully combine their traditions of wine production with raising livestock.
Different types of cheese in France
With a choice ranging from soft, veined and pressed cheeses to goat's cheese and fromage frais, it's not an easy decision picking a cheese in France.
AOC and AOP - two quality labels for French cheeses
