If anyone loves cheese more than us Brits, it's the French, and if you go by the numbers, this might just be the most popular cheese in France; over 64,000 tonnes are produced every year!
And no wonder - this cheese, made from unpasteurised milk, is made expertly by French farmers with generations worth of wisdom. When young, there are notes of sweetness and fruits in the creamy, yoghurt texture; as it matures, and the calcium crystallizes, the taste deepens to become nuttier as the texture hardens.
Made from cows milk.
And don't just take our word for it! Great British Chefs (a magazine, not an official title!) have called Comte "the ultimate cooking cheese", and praise its versatility and delicious taste.
