Baking with Cheese My top 5 recipes

It would be hard to live in the Haute Savoie in France and not love cheese. Luckily I’m a lover of cheese and baking! I’ve put together some of my favourite recipes from Taste of Savoie using cheeses from this region.

Good quality cheeses are readily available from the many Fromageries – sometimes called Fruitières, throughout France and in this region we have an abundance. You’ll find a Fromagerie in most towns and mountain villages. You can also buy directly from farms. What I enjoy most when visiting a Fromagerie is the knowledge I gain. You can always ask for advice as to which cheese will work best for your dish or cheeseboard. There are many different qualities of each type of cheese and I have been asked on occasion what I plan to do with the cheese so that they can recommend the best quality of the cheese for this!

Below are a few of my favourite Baking With Cheese recipes.

I particularly enjoy finding recipes and creating a fusion version. Click on the recipe titles or the photos to see the full recipes.
