All about French Cheese

Welcome to a virtual cheese tour de France. We tasted the country’s sumptuous variety of cheeses to prepare this little gift to you.

Separatist Corsica, France

Corsicans don’t leave the French cold. Some people recommended the island for us warmly, while others advised to avoid it. We wanted to see ourselves what to think about this small, separatist island and its trigger-happy inhabitants. We avoided the high season and headed there in December. It turned out to be a good choice. We saw only a couple of other tourists, but still enjoyed relatively mild climate. In the summertime it is said to be very hot, crowded and crazy expensive as there are some two million tourists in Corsica every year.
