Remarks

You can replace the Espoisse with another kind of cheese. I prefer one that is both soft and well-flavoured (Saint Nectaire, Saint Marcellin, Mont d'Or...) but it's just as good with Comté or Cheddar.

And to drink?: Legend has it that Espoisse was Napoleon's favourite cheese, and he apparently liked to wash it down with a Gevrey-Chambertin. So, open a bottle of this and you'll dine like an emperor.
