The Annual Cheese Calendar arrives with much fanfair.
The annual Cheese Girls Calendar from France, new for 2010 -(See the tasteful, image examples below.)
From the publisher of the Calendar......."By placing the opposite of the stereotypes that too often trivialize the soil, the calendar From'Girls bears another look at our surroundings and gourmet food. Making cheese more poetic, more sensitive, more childlike, more female maybe! ...It's certainly out of the rut of safety and health for us to restore its rightful place in the exclusive club of products with high cultural value."
"The raw milk cheese is a matter of culture ... Like wine, cheese is part of our heritage and is inseparable from our history. He has helped shape our landscapes, there is a link between a local and know-how, he was the architect of an ecological balance. Without cheese, France would not be what it is. Without the variety of cheeses that make up our board so envied in the world, breeds of cows, sheep or goats could not shape our landscapes so beautiful. Therefore, the Association advocates for not leaving our old heritage in the hands of industry groups who falsify cheese and plunder our know-how. Provocation if any, Calendar recalls the tone of adult humor that Beauty inspires respect. May all foodies and young generations to be aware. The future of our land is in our hands."

Photos in the spirit of a working woman.....
The association has chosen a contemporary and realistic tone that tells the storys on a humorous and offbeat level. Piles of cheese or cheese only at the center of the stage, the pinups are one with the cheese.
As mentioned, these Calendars are rare and released very late.
Nevertheless. It's a unique and rare gift opportunity for any food enthusiast.
