The selection of a real cheesemonger
Fromage, formaggio, froumadje, käse, cheese, queso, queijo... no matter the language, cheese is a world to be explored. That is why we offer you in our shops hundreds of cheeses from all continents. Make your selection from an incredibly wide variety of cheeses: cooked and uncooked pressed cheeses, soft bloomy-rind, washed-rind or natural rind cheeses, fresh cheese or blue mould cheeses made from cow, goat, buffalo cow or sheep milk. Our salesclerks will be more than happy to cut the cheese before you, to make you discover new flavours, and to serve guaranteed fresh products.
Among the wide selection of cheese offered in La fromagerie Hamel boutiques, we are especially proud of our signature select line of cheeses. The name of this line is quite unmistakable: Le Pic. If you find it reminds you of the name of the owners, the Picards, you've guessed right. This selection of the best products results from the special, sometimes exclusive relationship we have built with loyal cheese makers. To bring the more fragile imported cheeses to our shops, we will have them specially shipped by airplane to preserve their freshness, delicate aromas or authenticity. Finally, some will be carefully matured by our master ripener in our cellars. With the Le Pic line of products, you will discover, rediscover or better appreciate the flavours of great cheeses and associate them with renowned names, such as Camembert, Brie de Meaux, Chabichou du Poitou, Mamirolle, Sainte-Maure, Brillat-Savarin, Selles-sur-Cher, or the famous Stilton steeped in Port, to illustrate with just a few examples the variety of cheeses in this exclusive line.
