Fromage to You – Review of The Cheese Market

OK yes I did a bit of a Gone Girl and disappeared off the food blogging scene for a couple of months. I would love to tell you I was getting drastic plastic surgery, or had eloped with a billionaire.

Truth is, I just needed a break from blogging. As you sometimes do.

And I also ran out of cheese puns.

What dragged me back was several people telling me how they missed the blog. And not just my Mum.

So while I was away something interesting happened in Doha. A dedicated cheese shop opened.

The Cheese Market requires a special trip to find at The Pearl Qatar. Although I plan to open my own place back in Australia some day, it’s also a destination shop. You don’t just walk past and think “Ohhh I will buy my self a little Chevre for a treat”.

It took two attempts at actually entering the door of this place. My first trip was met with closed doors. In soft opening phase It’s a very pretty shop (think cupcake shop with cheese) with an interesting selection of cheese. They only had French and Italian cheeses when I finally visited and were expecting some more Spanish cheeses in coming days.

Staff were sweet and helpful and very accommodating with the free samples though a little lacking in knowledge. When I asked why a certain chutney went well with brie they didn’t know (spot the cheese wanker).

Much effort is put into the presentation and wrapping of my purchase of a pepper flecked cheese and some condiments (review to come).

That said, for me and fellow cheese lovers in Doha, worth a visit and a splurge.

BTW…I have a new batch of puns. Prepare to groan.
