Calendar promotes French farm-fresh fromage

leave a comment »


From last year’s calendar

They are soft, round and all in the best possible taste – the cheeses that is, not the pin-up girls promoting them.

But the “From Girls” are a group of cheese fans prepared to pose in their underwear for a pictorial calendar promoting regional French fromage.

The pin-up calendar was the idea of the Association of traditional French cheesemakers, “Fromage des Terroirs”, who say that far from being a cliche, the calendar smashes the unflattering stereotype of the frumpy French farm wife…

“Barbara Munster”, “Roxane Cantal” and the other From Girls pictured in the calendar aren’t professional models or cheese industry employees either. They just have a passion for one of the bare essentials of French food.

Most of my life, I haven’t differentiated especially between food and sex. Both are special pleasures.

Did get me in trouble a few times, though. Har.
