History Fact

Good Things Come in Small Packages

Ancient Greece was a strange place: For one, they believed that redheads turned into vampires after death. Okay, okay, so maybe they’re right about that one. They also thought that small penises were elegant, especially in comparison to bigger, er, packages, which they associated with “old men and barbarians.”

Food Thing

Bleu de Gex

Cow’s milk; blue; soft

Region of origin: Franche Comté

Here is another AOC- and AOP-designated cheese from the mountainous areas of Ain and Jura. Bleu de Gex is the work of the monks of the Saint-Claude Abbey in Franche-Comté, and today is still produced in small mountain dairies that employ the traditional methods that have been handed down from the 14th century.

Alpine pastures are crucial to this cheese’s flavor. The milk comes only from the Montbeliardes or Pie rouge de l’Est cows, which graze freely in the summer on the grasses, herbs and flowers in the Jura mountains.

Bleu de Gex is a lightly salted blue cheese with a creamy, smooth texture that is slightly crumbly. It has a characteristic nutty taste with a hint of mushrooms and vanilla. This goes to show that you needn’t love strong cheeses to enjoy a blue.
