The Best Cheese in Paris
TESTED AND APPROVED BY THE INSIDR TEAM
For whom? If you’re mad about cheese, this place is your new HQ. Maison Cantin is famed in the industry for its refined knowledge of cheese, and it’s a solid place to emulate for any new entrants into the market
What’s in it? Perfectly refined and matured French cheese making its home in Paris – they are traditional cheese refiners since 1950, you’ll struggle to find a joint with a greater depth of knowledge about cheese
What do we love best? We’ve rarely seen such a wide and qualitative selection of French cheese! As a hint, a bit of cheese, wine, and music goes down a charm on a warm evening by La Seine in Paris.
What’s the mood like? A journey back in time to when Paris was only made of small specialist shops & craftsmen like this one
