For the French, cheese is a symbol of Frenchness. They’ve been eating great cheeses for a long time here, some of the most famous were being made thousands of years ago. In this episode we consider some off the most famous cheeses as well as some of the stinkiest, weirdest and most dangerous cheeses that France produces. One of them is officially the smelliest cheese in the world, one has creatures living inside (which apparently adds flavour), one was loved by a King so much it contributed to him losing his head – yes that’s you Louis XVI. A slice of French cheese is a slice of French history!
We explore some of the fantastic legends, stories and fun facts in this fun and fascinating homage to French fromage.
And in the Q&A section we answer a question from a lady in Melbourne who says she read that France has banned UFOs! Is it true – or not? Find out more in this fun episode…
