It's no secret that the French are obsessed with cheese (here's the evidence to prove it, by the way).
Yes, the typical French person will eat a whopping 25.9 kilos of the stuff each year.
And there are so many varieties that Charles de Gaulle once said "How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?"
Some estimates put the total as high as 400 today.
Anyway, cheese is one of the best things about this marvellous country, and here is a homage (or should that be a fromage) to it!
