This cheese is made in the town of Ambert and the first part of the name comes from the Latin word fourme, which means shape. The blue mould is introduced first into the cheese and then, air is injected into the pate, which allows the mould to develop. The cheese is mild with a firm but creamy texture and a subtle aromatic flavour that resists being too salty. It has a savoury, nutty aftertaste. The rind is dry and wrinkled with patches of mould. The blue moulds are more erratic in location than the usual streaks of blue produced in the pâté.
