    My favourite cheese at the moment is laguiole. It was popular with my 4year old grandson when they came to visit in the summer ( he turned down the cheaper offferings!) so I had to bring some for him to eat over Christmas.
    I also brought raclette for a raclette supper, some reblochon for making tartiflette for another supper; (not a low carb recipe!) and some Roquefort for those that like it (I don't)
    Here's my local cheesemonger http://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2012/06/17/1379949-jeanot-le-fromager-qui-file.html He is a man who clearly enjoys his work (but I have to say his size reminds me not to eat too much)

    My favorite cheeses are Brie or any type of Blue cheese but I have to eat them sparingly as cheese is very high in calories and if I eat it every night after diner I will invariably but on weight so I just eat it occasionally.

    Cheese generally wont harm your bg levels but can definitely harm your waistline.

    I never knew laguiole was a cheese. I have some overpriced cheese knives by that name so that must be why they are called that. tartiflette was one of my favourite foods, we had it about once a month. Never again though unfortunately.

    I find that the Fromage des Vosges from Lidl is a nice cheese if you are prepared to let it mature to past the eat by date. It's OK before that but it really develops.

    It's a camenbert style cheese and the older and crustier and runnier in the middle, the better in my opinion. The nutitional info is given here: http://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=2063625
