I love cheese. The only reason I agreed to venture into lowcarb/keto in the first place is because I was told I could have cheese. I know I’m not the only one! 😛
A charcuterie board is the perfect way to to satisfy keto and non-keto guests alike.
This beautiful board features 3 wonderful cheeses from @frenchcheesecorner.
Oh yeah, and they are all 0 carb. 🙋🏽♀️Swipe 👉🏽
Esquirrou- This is a hard cheese and has a mild nutty taste. I paired it with strawberries and it was perfect. I had to practice a lot of self restraint to not eat that entire wedge by myself in one sitting. 😂
Saint-André- This is a decadent and incredibly rich cheese. To me it tasted like an intense brie. It’s got a buttery texture and I liked dipping toasted pecans in it.
Saint Agur- This is a double cream blue cheese. It’s salty, spicy and sharp! 😋 It has a spreadable texture and I liked topping it on some Persian cucumber slices.
Head over to @frenchcheesecorner
’s highlights to learn more about these cheeses. Trust me, it’s cheese heaven over there. 🤤❤️🧀
If you had to choose which one of these would be your first pick?

Ever wonder how to enjoy the most out of that cheese plate you made? Let’s guide you through some incredible pairing ideas with @cheesesexdeath
1️⃣Saint André is lovely with a simple strawberry as it adds a juicy sweetness and acidity to counter that rich, salty cream;
2️⃣Saint Albray pairs nicely with some Dijon mustard because it brings some tang to the buttery texture and adds a little salty flavor to balance the savory and subtly sweet notes of this cheese;
3️⃣Le Cayrol is a perfect partner for that patê which ups the gentle herbaceous notes with its luscious flavor and adding an acidic cornichon really brings it all together;
4️⃣Esquirrou goes amazingly with apricot preserves and pistachios which gently nudges this cheese’s fruity notes to the surface;
5️⃣Saint Agur’s best friend is definitely honey because it complements the gentle spicy notes and salty finish of this creamy blue cheese.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this pairing guide! Be sure to share your new knowledge with your friends the next time you’re entertaining with a cheese board so they can enjoy the most out of these cheeses too! 😋
We are so proud to present, not one, not two, but THREE gold winning 🥇 cheeses from the 2019 World Cheese Awards held in Bergamo, Italy. 🍾 🎉 Esquirrou took home the gold medal in the Hard Sheep’s Milk cheese category. Saint André grabbed the gold medal in the Soft/Unpressed Cow’s Milk cheese category. And Saint Agur snatched the gold medal for the Blue Vein cheese with Natural Rind category. 🎊 Comment below 👇 if you’ve tried any of these cheeses and let us know your favorite pairings!
Here’s a board for the berry lovers! 😍🙌 Pair that Chaumes with some raspberries for a delightful combo, or with some salami for a real treat! As far as the Award Winning 🥇 Esquirrou on the top, we think it pairs best with some blueberries and wheat crackers or some pistachios to enhance the nutty flavors! Honestly pretty much anything goes on this board when you have cheeses this good! 😋 What are you digging into first?
Le meilleur fromage du monde 2018 est l’Esquirrou. Un « Petit Ossau-Iraty”, Authentique AOP (Appelation d'Origine Protégée) basque qui a déjà fait l'objet d'une distinction en 2013 : Médaillé d’or au Concours Général Agricole.
L’Esquirrou, élaboré par Michel Touyarou, maître-fromager à la Fromagerie de Mauléon, est "fabriqué avec du lait de brebis entier, issu des races locales basco-béarnaise, Manech tête noire ou rousse. Après caillage, la meule ronde est salée, puis affinée plusieurs mois." On dit qu'il est très apprécié accompagné de pâte de coing ou de confiture de cerises noires, mais aussi de piment d'espelette ou de confiture d'oignons... #esquirrou #ossoiraty #micheltouyarou #fromage #fromagedebrebis #fromager #epicerirfine #lepicerieabj

Bon dia formatgers!! Ahir ens va arribar el formatge que ha estat escollit aquests dos últims anys com el millor del món !! L, OSSAU IRATY ESQUIRROU AOP
Formatge de llet d,ovella basco-bearnesa, de pasta premsada.
El.laborat entre la Vall d,Assau, provincia de Bearn i la selva d,Irati (fageda més gran d,Europa).
A la zona se la coneix amb el nom de "Brevis" (ovella en francés) o "Aulha" (ovella en occità). És de fabricació estacional doncs les ovelles donen llet de Novembre a Juliol. Així doncs, el seu consum ideal és de Juny s Novembre.
Al 1980 van rebre l, AOC(D.O). Ja sabeu, si el voleu tastar passeu per la botiga.
Salut i formatges!

This is the Provençal cheese plate of your dreams 🤩 @cheesesexdeath
takes us on a journey to Southern France with this cheese board inspired by the flavors of Provence, a kingdom of olive oil, figs, and lavender fields. Pair our Esquirrou with some olives or lay it on a buttered up baguette 🥖 with some drizzled honey for a real treat 🤤
Building a cheese board is as easy as 1️⃣,2️⃣,3️⃣ thanks to @cheesebynumbers
1️⃣ Select your cheeses. Le Cayrol, Saint Agur, and Esquirrou are excellent choices as each have a distinct flavor and come from different animals and regions of France.
2️⃣ Pick your pairings and garnishes. It’s always great to diversify with a selection of sweet, sour, and spicy on your board. In this case we have Spicy Salami, Blackberries, Radishes, and Cornichons. A French Baguette 🥖 and Pistachios are great additions and garnishing with Rosemary adds a nice touch.
3️⃣ Include a dip! Adding a sweet jam like Blueberry can elevate a board and add an incredible flavor kick to a French Baguette topped with cheese.
There you have it! A beautiful board prepared by @cheesebynumbers
