Review: If cheese heaven exists, this is how it would look like.  France’s celebrated cheese enthusiasts, La Ligue des Fromagers extraordinaires, descended upon SoHo at the French Cheese Board for the most amazing brunch, featuring French all-stars including: comté, bleu, camembert, and of course, mimolette.

As the guests clad in white attire arrived, those familiar sounds of uncorking of champagne and people happily tucking into the most amazing spread went like a melodious symphony. The display celebrated cheese, France and the pleasure of the table. The buzz at the French Cheese Board was amazing with a packed house of foodies.  It was a chance to rub elbows with reputable bakers such as: Pierre Zimmermann, owner of La Fournette, who came in from Chicago. And others lingered on over a glass of champagne and savored a delicious macaron.

If you haven’t heard of the French Cheese Board, you are missing out. It’s quirky store in SoHo opened with an amazing reception in May and frequently hosts exhibits, tastings, classes and receptions. It is a shrine, learning center, and creative lab devoted to promoting French cheese in America.
