A Very Cheesy Santa

Yes, even the Père Noël, as he's known here, is a fan of French cheese... Personally, my favorite is Beaufort, one of the hard cheeses from the Savoie region. It's made from cow's milk.

After six years of living here, I've finally acquired a taste for goat cheese, despite the fact that some friends correctly pointed out that these fromages (often shaped like the long one in the basket) smell pretty much the same as your average goat pen...

This was on the window of our local bakery back when we lived in a little bitty village (pop. 2,000) in the Franche-Comte region.
