After a decade in national education i decided 3 years ago to become a cheese monger. Passionate by cheese i have learned cheeses process, their stories (each cheese as his own origin), and how to take care of the variety of french of course but also italian, swiss.. products. Meeting cheese producers in many areas in France (Savoie, Normandy, Auvergne) helped me to understand how is working the cheese's economy and how is important to celebrate this heritage.

Het was zeer goed voorbereid op een schitterende locatie en een welkom gevoel toen we binnenkwamen. Hij wist er erg veel vanaf en was alert op onze interesse en behoeften.

If you are uncertain to do it or not, DO IT, You will not regret it! we will definitely recommend it to our friends. Thomas was so friendly, welcoming and gave us so many interesting details to understand good cheese, guided us to learn how to taste it properly and provided also with brochure about PDO products. Just a very lovely evening ❤️

We had a very nice night with Thomas at his cheese tasting experience. He is very knowledgeable about cheeses and their pairings. The five cheeses that we tried were completely new to me, and ran the full gambit in flavors and profiles. The pairings that he provided were also thoughtful and interesting to try. I would recommend this experience to anyone that has wanted to know more about cheese, or wants to have a nice night in Rouen.

What a wonderful evening.. this man knows his cheese and pairings. It was so intriguing to discover how the taste of the cheese can be so influenced by the rind or the pairing. Quite fascinating and highly recommended.
