Please tell me you love cheese as much as I do. Now that we have our mutual love exposed let’s talk about Ile De France. Are you curious about French cheese? Do you purchase it often? If you love Brie, Camembert, Comté and St. André then chances are you have enjoyed cheese from France. They also import spectacular goat cheese. Ile De France sources from the best cheese makers around that beautiful country. They have been importing to the USA since 1936!

Ever think of sending someone cheese as a gift? Now is your chance. If you win you can send your prize to a loved one of friend if you wish. Or you might just want to keep it all for yourself.

That is perfectly OK.

Besides eating cheese on it’s own, the gamut is wide open as to the recipes you can create with it. From grilled cheese to frittatas, casseroles, pizzas….the list is endless.

Here is creamy Ile De France goat cheese on my Sweet Potato Pizzas with Figs and Pecans. A heavenly combo!

Cheese platters are such wonderful additions to serve at all of your holiday parties. If you want to learn more about how to put one together and about cheese pairings their website is very helpful.

If you are wondering why that boat is in their logo then you can check out the history of this wonderful company on their website. Here is a hint: Cheese was imported on HUGE ocean liners. Could you imagine being one of the first people to try such delicacies? These days we take this stuff for granted. All of this greatness can be delivered to your doorstep within days. Or even sent over night. Amazing if you think about it!

Do you guys remember when I started talking about Ile De France this summer for Get Grillin’? I am so happy to share this wonderful French cheese importer with you again…
