An introverted little cheese that belies it’s mighty and rightly deserved presence on any self respecting cheeseboard. It’s flavour is subtle, mild and creamy with earthy notes and a hint of fruitiness. Although mild tasting it flavour builds as it’s devoured.
Fourme d’Ambert takes its name from a combination of the latin word ‘forma’ which means shape or form and the town of Ambert – which is the main town in the Livadois.
