Fromagerie Quatrehomme

Cheese is among the many fine things that the world owes to the French and Paris offers a mind-boggling range of cheese options. Fromagerie Quatrehomme, a legendary cheese maker, has been a maison du fromage (house of cheese) since 1949.

House of cheese

Their cozy little store is choc-c-bloc with an incredible array of cheese. Besides the classic assortment of cheese, they also have their house specialties like the Les Fontainebleaux Coulis, the raisin encrusted Le Royal and exquisite Le Brie double aux noix which is stuffed with truffles.

Famed destination for cheese

The store is helmed by Marie Quatrehomme, the first woman to win the prestigious Meilleur Ouvrier de France title. The award is reflected in her loyal clientele as well as their reputation as the go-to destination for St. Marcellin, Beaufort, Comte, to name a few.

The staff is friendly, generous with tasting samples and attentive to English-speaking tourists. They also wrap up your cheese in vacuum packed bags so your suitcases aren’t ‘perfumed.’ 🙂
