Did you know?
Nearly 92% of French people eat PDO cheeses, butters and creams.

4.7kg is the average annual quantity of PDO cheese purchased per household in France! Holy cow!

Fancy checking? For 2 weeks, restaurateurs and both cream- and cheese-makers are joining forces to present to you (and especially to let you taste) their excellent products made with all their love and know-how.

"Along with bread and wine, cheese makes up the holy trinity of European food." Michel Tournier

This event was created by Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Gourmand and the French cheese-makers associations in partnership with the PDO and PGI cheese-makers union, and Bresse cream- and butter-makers union. 


Beneath her discreet and calm appearance, Mihriban is surprisingly vivacious! Whether she is on the move or laughing (she has a hearty and infectious laugh), she is always thinking. There's always something going on up there! Mihriban has high standards for herself and likes both challenge and perfection. She does everything she can to achieve her goal and always does so with grace.
