Remarks:

If you can't get Mont d'or in your area try other cheeses, if possible soft paste with a wooden box.

You can serve this with cooked meats, and a green salad with French dressing.

And to drink?

A good white wine if possible from the same Area, a Jura's wine of course or one of those delicious White wine from Savoie. If you don't like white wine, try a not too strong red, something like a Beaujolais.
