The Beaufortain Dairy Cooperative is a collective of 184 dairies who deliver their milk in order to transform it into Beaufort AOP, one of the most expensive cheeses in France. It is sold in specialty cheese shops around the world and in their own shop / restaurant in Paris along with a wide range of other delicious regional products from the Savoy.

On arrival at the restaurant, you will be greeted and seated in the downstairs cellar. You will first be asked if there is one wine, cheese or meat that you do not like so your server can adapt your tasting menu accordingly. 

The Passport Gourmet Tasting experience is an opportunity to discover a selection of some of these high quality cheeses from which your host will select 6 to 8 fine artisanal cheeses from the Savoy representing the main families of French Cheeses, served with bread, a small salad, 3 fine meats, and accompanied by 2 glasses of red and 2 glasses of white wine.

Eat the cheese in the order recommended, then experiment with your own combinations because there is no right or wrong. 

Any questions during your meal, just feel free to ask at any time.
