French Cheeses: 3 to Try

We ♥ fromage.  Cheese featured prominently in all of our dinner picnics in France and we’ve learned a few things about our cheese likes and dislikes.  We are all about the runny, unpasteurized cows-milk cheeses that can be spread like butter and that used to be banned from public spaces because of their odor.  We’ve listed our favorites below.  Word of warning: keep these cheeses in a tightly sealed container or else your house will smell like feet!


Monaco Day Trip

We took a day trip from Nice to visit Monaco and pretend we were billionaires.  Or Bond.

The drive along the coast was stunning and if we’d had more time we would have explored any of the coves and beaches along the way.  I think if you’re looking for a quieter and beautiful South of France beach experience, that stretch between Nice and Monaco (Villefrance sur Mer, Eze, Cap D’Ail) is probably the place to be.

Our first stop was the Monte Carlo.  Because we were internationally renown secret agents, we figured they’d let us right in.  Not so much.




Le 6 Paul Bert

We found out that our friends Jess and Koshi would be arriving in Paris on our last night there, so we made plans to meet for dinner and celebrate.  We made a reservation at Le 6 Paul Bert, which is the hip and modern sister to the classic French bistro, Paul Bert.
