France Crowns English Civil Servant Matthew Feroze As Top Cheesemonger


NOTE: This was a contest for cheeseMONGER – not maker as this article mentions.

“”One who does not eat cheese must be in a state of constant turbulence,” an old French proverb goes.

But it is a British civil servant who has left French cheesemakers in a turbulent state, after being crowned king of the fromage in France’s national cheesemaking contest.

Matthew Feroze, on sabbatical from his job as a government accountant, planned to take a quiet respite in the French countryside and perfect his hobby of cheese-making.

But Feroze could be about to leave his auditing days behind, after becoming the first foreigner to win the Concours National des Fromagers at the prestigious Salon Mondiale de Restauration et Hôtellerie, beating one hundred competitors at the contest.In just one year, Feroze has found himself at the top of the French cheese-making world, since he first found a temporary job with Lyon’s the Fromagerie Mons-Etienne Boissy in 2011.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
