I was in Paris in December of 2007 for a few days and had the most amazing cheese. It was in a quiche and a gnocchi dinner that I had (both on the Isle St. Luis by happenstance). I have no idea what cheese it was, but I could distinctly tell it was the same cheese flavor in both dishes. I have tried to track the cheese down since, with no luck. I am not much of a cheese connoiseur, but I would describe the cheese as having quite a bit of tang and a very smooth flavor, almost like a sharp brie.
Any one have any idea what this tantalizing cheese may have been? The only cheese I have been able to identify as typically Parisian is camembert, but the version that I have been able to track down in the States tasted like a very mild brie.
