Philippe Olivier, who owns a rather special cheese shop in downtown Boulogne, loves the stuff. In fact he’s so passionate about the stuff he’ll tell you that the best way to see France is through its cheeses because each region’s variety reflects its climate, culture and history. In his beautiful and classy store there are books and videos in English to teach even the most ignorant Anglophone about the art and history of cheese making.
