French cheeses are among the most buttery, aromatic delicacies in the world. Our Classic collection features some of France's most revered varieties – Camembert, Petit Delice d'Argental and Brie L'Original Paysan Breton. Enjoy them with a crusty baguette, artisanal crackers, fresh fruit or charcuterie.
Camembert: France's most famous cheese, a soft surface-ripened cow's milk cheese with a bloomy, edible rind and a mild, creamy interior. (8.8 oz.)
Petit Delice d’Argental: Produced by one of France's most prominent cheesemakers, with triple cream for a thick, velvety texture and distinctive tang. (8 oz.)
Brie L’Original Paysan Breton: Named for the French region where it originated, this full-flavored, robust cow's milk cheese develops a full, mushroomy flavor as it ripens. (8 oz.)
- Collection includes three cheeses, one of each variety.
- 1 lb. 8.8 oz. total.
- Shipped chilled.
- Because the items in this collection are crafted in limited quantities, we may occasionally have to make substitutions with similar items of equal quality.
- Made in France.
- Use & Care
- The cheese ships chilled with gel packs. Upon receipt, refrigerate immediately. The cheese is best stored in a vegetable bin or container away from the refrigerator fan.
- To experience each cheese's full flavor, serve at room temperature. For optimal flavor and texture, bring the cheeses to room temperature for approximately 1 hour prior to serving.
- We recommend leaving the cheese in the packaging as it comes to room temperature, to prevent oxidation, which may affect the flavor.
- Cut and set out only as much cheese as you plan to serve, returning the rest to the refrigerator.
- Leftover cheese is best re-wrapped in parchment or waxed paper. Plastic wrap is not recommended. It is best to consume the cheese within one to two weeks of receipt.
- Camembert: Cow's milk, salt, rennet, molds, penicillium camemberti.
- Petit Delice d’Argental: Cow's milk, salt, rennet, crème fraiche.
- Brie L'Original Paysan Breton: Cow's milk, rennet, salt, inoculated with cheese culture (penicillium candidum, penicillium camemberti) or brevibacterium linens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nikolet Ramsay from Rotten Cheese I purchased this cheese collection, as part of a gift for my husbands birthday being he is a cheese fanatic! Unfortunately we received spoiled cheese. It was extremely upsetting and disgusting to have my husband slice, and bite into rotten cheese. Willams Sonoma made right on this situation by giving me a refund but it still doesn’t take away the fact I gave my husband rancid cheese. I’m a great customer of their sister company pottery barn, hence why I had trust in this company with expectations to receive quality. Obviously I would’ve been better off going to the store and making my husband a “homemade” cheese crate/basket. This was a very unfortunate situation, I’m thankful this gift was for my husband and not another friend or relative outside of my household, talk about embarrassing.Date published: 2019-05-31Rated 5 out of 5 by West Virginia Mama from Melt in your mouth The cheese lovers in my family raved about this collection. I will certainly buy again next year if you have this product. Delicious.Date published: 2019-01-08Rated 5 out of 5 by CHRIS1900 from Heavenly Cheese The box arrived subtly marked 'PERISHABLE'. Maybe brighter letters would help convey urgency. Packed effectively with 2 cold packs and shredded paper. The three cheeses were cool to the touch and beautiful to look at, because living far from specialty cheese stores this was a gift from above. And a great value! I've spent more than this on three French cheeses in the store. I hope they rotate selections because I'll become a regular!Date published: 2018-08-24
