Win a French Cheese Hamper worth £100

March 30, 2010

Vive le Cheese Competition for the

Best Written Blog and the Best Visual Blog

Love French cheeses? Do you cook with them, eat them, write about them and photograph them? Have you already got a fantastic blog posting or could we inspire you to create one? If yes, then read on and get your cheese blogging juices flowing.

Vive le Cheese knows just how much hard work and inspiration goes into making a great post and so we’ve decided to reward the two best French cheese bloggers with some yummy prizes. The best visual and the best written blog will each receive a French cheese hamper worth £100. We are also giving out signed copies of the new book by La Fromagerie’s cheese expert, Patricia Michelson.

So how can you get involved? The theme of your post could be centred around a recipe for the ultimate high-rise soufflé or a world-beating cheese toastie. Or perhaps you have something to say about the first time you tasted a perfectly ripe Camembert or that moment when you discovered a new French cheese taste sensation.

Perhaps you have a photograph that shows melting Emmental stretching on the tines of a fork or the white bloom of a farmhouse Brie. Or do you have a video of a visit to a cheese shop or a guide on how to bake a Vacherin?

When you’ve posted your French cheese blog, we would love you to link to our Vive le Cheese blog so all our readers and friends can read your pearls of cheese wisdom, be inspired by your ideas and share your recipes with their friends and family.

We are really looking forward to seeing how the British love of French cheeses can create a stir in the blogosphere. Vive le Cheese!
