Pays de la Loire
Pays de la Loire is what you see of France in your mind’s eye: rolling pasture, verdant fields, and majestic castles dotting the riverbanks. It is also the birthplace of beurre blanc and the rillete. You may think that a region known for both a butter sauce and a preparation of potted meat might make some seriously good cheese, and you’d be right.
