Trip Report Paris Trip Highlight: Cantin, Fromager de tradition Affineur

Jump to last reply

Last month, I took my travel companion to visit the cheese store I frequent when I rent an apartment in the Rue Cler neighborhood. I didn't realize that "the corner shop' was the world-renown Marie-Anne Cantin fromager de tradition Affineur.

I have a longer trip post on my blog, www.juliesparis.wordpress.com , but here's a synopsis that might be useful for Paris-bound travelers in search of cheese.

Mme. Cantin’s father opened the shop in 1950 and it is from him that she learned the art of cheese-making. She ages her own delicacies in one of her seven caves, and sources others from small farms. Mme.’s website advises that the process begins with the hay or grass that a happy cow, goat or ewe grazes, and finishes in caves, aging from a few weeks to two years for a beaufort or comté. The inviting shop features chèvre, brie, camembert, comté, roquefort and cantal.

If you're visiting Paris and want to learn about French cheese from the experts, a visit to Cantin is highly recommended! It's in the rue de Champs de Mars, between the rue Cler and the avenue Bosquet. Paris experts: what other cheese shops can you recommend?
