Hmmm…is this a good thing?

Just saw that Loulou linked to you and I thought I would drop in. I’ve started a new blog…I got a little sick of all of that “France Profonde” imagery. Now I’m just blogging about whatever I feel like. Still a lot about Rodez, though.

Glad to see your blog is still going strong! Take care,

Betty

I would love to know where you found the pepper jack in Paris. Pepper jack is one of the foods my son misses most from the US.

Yesyes! I agree with Katie, let us know where you found it!

Betty – Definitely. :) I’ll update my blogroll.

Katie and Jessica – I bought it at Julhès, the cheese shop across the street. It’s not actually pepper jack, but “raclette au piment.” I’d never noticed it before, but a long line this morning gave me more time than usual to scrutinize the cheese offerings. Since it’s a raclette cheese it melts beautifully, and has a mild peppery bite. We made grilled cheese sandwiches out of it. Works for me!

Pepper Jack in Australia? Never never never cry.

What amazing and wonderful news! I had no idea there was a raclette au piment. I wonder if it’s readily available or only at your fromagerie. I will have to check it out!

Are there any more clues for us non-Americans?

Hannah – Don’t despair, you can just make your own out of macadamia nuts, tofu, and tabasco! ;)

Mistress of Spices – I suspect you could find it at many well-stocked cheese shops, but probably not at Monoprix. Fortunately, it wasn’t terribly expensive.

Fiona – Pepper Jack is Monterey Jack cheese with hot peppers in it. It’s great for melting and features prominently in Tex-Mex classics like nachos. I know there’s no shortage of spicy peppers in China, but the melty cheese part might be a bit more difficult.

Nanan – So did mine… it was love at first sight.

Hannah – Well, there you go. :)

Hm, I’ve had raclette au poivre but not au piment. Sounds like good stuff. That makes me want raclette. Melty cheese, potatoes, cold cuts – seriously, the French were on their game when they invented their traditional dishes ;-)

Oh, pepper jack. What’s not to love? Seems peculiarly American.

I’m going to be emailing you shortly…have a couple things to ask you!

Hopie – Yes, they were. My cheese shop actually loans out raclette makers (a fact I learned the same day I bought this cheese). Maybe we should have a raclette party!

hungry dog – That’s why I was so surprised to see a French version! :)

CultureChoc – Well, not really, but close enough. :)
